About Me

My photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. I love reading them all. xxxx

A Good Morning

Good Morning All

The craft meeting yesterday was nearly cancelled due to the bar where we meet being broken into over night, so the owner had to make a trip to the Guardia Civil.  There can be alot of burglary here due to there being no state help, so people get desperate.  Anyway, one of the ladies suggested we went to her house and it was wonderful.  This lady, Jackie, is into scrap booking, so we had a good look through her books and got lots of ideas.  Then I showed  a couple of the ladies how to make the box book like this one HERE.  Jackie goes back to the UK next week for afew months so she will be missed.  I do hope we can carry on meeting, as the others, and I, do enjoy it as we all seem to be into different crafts, which is great.  We also had a new lady join us, Margaret and she said she will be back next week to learn more as she does not do any crafting YET.

I made afew quick cards the other day from my Humphrey pack from Crafters Companion.

These are both flat images so I matted and layered onto various coloured card.

Quite simple this one, added string with a little elephant charm which I thought was quite cute.
A couple of gems too.

The Crafters Cafe # 38 - Use Metal

Tried to do a bit of a different design here for a change.  Using Spellbinders Scalloped circle, matted and layered for the larger image and smaller ones inside.

Beautiful cards Wendy. I think this time of year there is always more burglaries here as well. It's so sad when people who have no scruples stoop so low. Have a Good Day. Hugs Rita xxx

Hi Wendy. I love little Humphrey and friends and don't use him often enough. Love both cards - both very cute.
I really enjoyed our lesson yesterday. It's great to have different ideas.
Hope you got some antibiotics and you're feeling a lot better today.
