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

Box Card

Good Morning All
Hope you all have a lovely Easter Weekend, lots of choccy!!!!!
I sent Easter eggs to Hollie and Noah, I know Noah is a little bit young but I,m sure Mum and Dad helped him eat it.  This is Hollie eating hers Mum said she couldn't wait to get stuck in!!!!  I bought one with a Peppa Pig bowl and cup, which she loves.



















*********************************

I have been admiring these box cards for a while now, there has been alot on blogland just lately and look quite complicated to make.  I saw Jak Heath make one on Create & Craft the other day and she made it look quite easy, so I thought I would have a go, and Patricia made one too and hers is gorgeous HERE.






These are both made with Forever Friends stash.  I sold quite afew baby cards on Friday so replacing my stock.





I made a 'boy' and a 'girl' one, not overly embellished, but I think they look quite nice.



I am going to make some more and decorate them more, and the beauty of them is that they fold flat for posting.

I promised you a picture of the cactus on the community and here it is, the flowers are just starting to open.














And these are what I found in the local China store on Saturday, sticky backed pearly gems, aren't they gorgeous?





I'm adding two packs to my Birthday candy, a white and a pink.
