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

Craft Club and Mens cards

Good Morning All
Happy Easter Everyone
Yesterday was our craft meeting and there were some gorgeous cards made too.
One of the ladies, Sue, wanted to make 'man' cards.  She is not a card maker but I think she has been converted, as she had been out and bought some stash!!!!!
And here she is with here first card (the 70th one) made all by herself, the one for Tabitha we made last week.

Here is three cards I made.

 The first one is a technique I saw on Sue Wilson You Tube channel.  OH's beer cartons cut and embossed, mixed in with some papers that Linda (Animal Aid) gave me a while ago.

The second one is the same card and some Paper Mania shapes.

Third one, same card embossed with a tool embossing folder.and a stack of cards added to make the shape of  presents.

Just something abit different to show Sue that you can make cards with very little stash, or recycle stuff too.

Here is my friend Lyn with a gorgeous card she added the finishing touched to yesterday, it was really stunning.

And here is me, Jacky on my left and Val on my right and Sue behind me.

  Unfortunately, this is the last time we will all be together for a while as some are going back to UK for visits and to live, but hopefully, some will still come each week.
