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

Good Morning All

Moving Along With The Times Challenge this week is 'Cats'.  Now I am not a Cat person, I am more a dog person, but I do support a couple of animal charities here in Spain.  Infact I have found another outlet for some cards, the other week when I went to our local craft shop with John Next Door, Ollie had a notice asking for any spare cards, a lady she knows, takes them to sell for a Cancer charity, another one which is close to my heart.  So I will be taking some there next time we go.

Anyway, back to the challenge.  The theme has been chosen by Janice.

I used a decoupage image from Lilac Gardens which no longer exists as Audrey retired.  I do try to make quite afew animal cards as they do sell well for the charity 'Animal Aid' that I give alot of my cards to.

Have fun if you decide to enter the challenge and we do love looking at all your creations.

This could be a picture of my house - if my husband would let me have more! Love all cats, the more the merrier! So good of you to support all those charities Wendy, and I don't think this beauty will hang about long. A super kitty creation for my Cat Challenge, Thank you, Jx

What a wonderful image and a fabulous card!

We have cats, and don't get me wrong they are pampered and loved, but personally I would have a dog!! Unfortunately hubby is allergic - so as he's told me many times - it's either him or dog. Hmmmmmmmmm
