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

Something Yummy to Eat or Drink

Good Morning All
Well I had the old top knot tidied up and coloured  yesterday and I,m very pleased with it.
 On countdown now for a week on Thursday, 30th, flying to UK to visit with Aurora and the rest of the family.  Cant wait.
Time for the challenge over at Creative Cottage Crafts Blog.  This fortnight the theme is 'Something Yummy to Eat or Drink' and the sponsor is The Cutting Cafe, who provided us with a set of sweet or cookie jar images that you could make a shaped card with and images of sweets and cookies or jelly beans  to put inside the jar.

There are loads of things you could do with these sets, but I just cut the jar out and filled it with sweets and decorated the jar with gems and ribbon.
 I used the small piece of paper I had left with 'cupcakes' on.  The backing paper brings it all together as it is sparkly and has all different tones of gold, orange, pinks and greys, very unusual.


With all this in mind, ie, food, I am really trying to be good on my diet as the weight is slowly creeping back on.  I have got to get a grip.

Morning Wendy, loved the way you have coloured the one heart in orange to tie all our colours together. works really well. Talking about diets, I have just sat and ate a scone with butter (no jam or cream) and a milky coffee. I keep thinking about cutting down, but as soon as I do I get really hungry and cheat !! LOL. Never mind, we all need a little bit of fat on us to make us cuddly !!! that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it !!
Have a good day. Janice xx
