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

Sugar & Spice

Good Morning All
Woohoo, 2 days until Hollie arrives, I,m like a kid waiting for Christmas.  And, hopefully, Noah will be coming early in October, his first venture abroad.
Allsorts Challenge  is 'Sugar & Spice'  all things nice, Girly, sweet treats etc, and has been chosen by our Tracy Mouse.
I decided to take this opportunity to make a Birthday card for one of my sisters.  I used a decoupage image that I had in my box, a cute cat carrying a cake (sweet treats)
Everything is from my stash, all the dies cuts I keep ready to use in boxes.
The circle sentiment is from Scrappers Delight
Joanna Sheen ribbon and Bead pins made by me!!

When we have our craft meets on Thursdays, if any of us have bought new dies, we take them along and let the others borrow them, or die cut there as I take the Cuttlebug, so this is where alot of these are from.

Hi Wendy. Loved yesterdays lilac cards. So different for Christmas but so pretty.
Cute card for your sisters card today. Love the little cat.
On my coach trip outing yesterday I wore my new earrings that you'd made. So many compliments. They are beautiful.
Hope the time goes quickly for Hollie arriving.

Hi Wendy
Loving the lilac again (my favourite colour).
Great idea with the die swaps especially when they're not so easy to get hold of for you all.

Hi Wendy, such a cute image on the card, i'm sure your sister will love it. I belong to 3 craft clubs and we all do the same and share anything new, it's a great way to try something new, otherwise we would all be spending a fortune. Janice xx
