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

Sissix Die

Good Morning All
Welcome to my new followers and, Patricia, I hope the new font helps.


Happy Birthday to my eldest boy today, 35 years, how time flies.


A quick post this morning as I am going to Doctors to get results of a regular 6 month blood test.


I love this Sissix Die 'Iron Gate'.  I have made two wedding cards of a similar design.

Under the die I have added lilac handmade paper with pressed leaves in it, added a large flower over the large satin bow.

 I cut  hearts from Congratulations paper and put some on the inside and punched hearts on the corners too.

The second one is all plain pink under the die and narrow satin pink ribbon.
