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

Easy Blue

Good Morning All
First I want to say 'Happy Birthday' to my Brother In Law Barry
Gill - will you pass on my love to him on the big 65
Second I want to tell you that I had to give in to the pain in my back and go to the Doctor on Monday.
Appointment at 11am, prescription to Pharmacia to get 6 injections, back to Doctor to have 1 injection in my bum, straight to hospital with letter from Doctor to have an Xray, 5 minute wait from going to reception, called in for Xray, 20 minute wait then handed envelope with a CD and report in, back home by1.35pm.  I have to go to Doctor each morning this week to have an injection, and take the results from Xray with me today for him to look at.  Touch wood, last night I was feeling abit better.

I just want to share a  quick card with you today as I have been asked by a lady at our craft meeting on Thursday mornings if I could put some card packs together for some  non-crafters who may turn up.

This is one idea I had.  I want to show them that you can make a card out of very little stash.

I used a 5 x 5 blue card blank
Darice embossing folder inked along sides
Homemade sentiment
Satin ribbon
Blue tulip
Blue gem
Cut and fold paper flower (not sure where from)

Hi Wendy,

A lovely, sweet little card, love the colour of the flower.

Sorry to hear about your back, hope its not serious and that you are not over doing it.
Don't these doctors look after you better abroad than in the UK?

Love & Hugs

Hi Wendy
Just goes to show that you don't need much to make a smashing card.
Sorry your back isn't too good. Certainly quicker attention than you Would've gotten here. Hope the improvement continues.
