About Me

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 a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

I Heard It On The Radio

Good Morning All
Moving Along With The Times Challenge time again and the theme this week is 'I Heard It On The Radio'.
Theme is a Song you heard and is really catchy!!       (like Walking on Sunshine = Sunny happy card) 

The other day I heard a song I had not heard for a long time 'Love is Like A Butterfly' sung by Dolly Parton.
This was the theme song for the TV Sitcom 'Butterflies' with Wendy Craig and Geoffrey Palmer and takes me back to childhood.


I used a music sheet background and Spellbinders Papillon die cuts.  I printed the words from the song to use as the sentiment with a pink ribbon and a pearl.


I decorated the inside using  some peeloffs and card.


I put  sentiment label on the bottom as, by the time this post goes live, I will have had my stall at the craft fayre, and it will go for sale there.  I thought it would be suitable for a 'Wife' as the butterfly sentiment is quite 'lovey'.

Great choice for the challenge chosen by Hazel, the boss lady.  Should be fun.

And we have a prize this week,  Mellow Yellow 
  by Donovan.

  14. Hi Wendy
    Any card with a butterfly is a winner in my book. Love how you've themed it with the challenge. Know the song (its going around my head as we speak) but think I was in young and in bed when the show was on.
