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

Humphrey & Chicks

Good Morning All
I was lucky to have my letter printed on Joanna Sheens News Letter this month and through that a lady who has lost her husband last week to the awful Pancreatic cancer got in touch with Tina and asked to be put in touch with me. (I lost my fiance to this dreadful disease in 2006).  This lady, Carol, lives in Spain also, so I  emailed her  and we have been having  a cyber chat this week.  Anyway, afew emails on and we are going to meet up on Friday afternoon.
Isn't it surprising who you meet through blogs etc, that is how I met my friend Val who comes to the craft meet on Thursdays.

Todays card is another Humphrey.

Such a sweet image with the little chicks.  I kept it simple, with shades of blue card and paper, matted onto  Swiss Dots embossed card.
I put the same image, but smaller, inside the card.

Hi Wendy. It´s lovely that Carol will have someone to talk to who has gone through the same thing. It´s a small world isn´t it?
Lovely card. Love anything to do with Humphrey. Pretty dotty background as well.
See you tomorrow.
Is Carol near enough to come to the Club?

Love Val x

Hi Wendy
Your Humphrey cards are always sooo cute.
I've been so lucky to meet some wonderful people through the blog, your fab neighbour John being the first. Sad you are meeting Carol under these circumstances but hopefully you can help her through this difficult time.
