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

Happy for Craft Rocket

Good Morning All
This is my first spot as a Design Team member for Craft Rocket Challenges.
I was happy to join this Design Team as we are not tied in to using digis.

The theme is 'Happy' what ever you want !!!!

I used my texture paste and a mask to make a background.
I cut two squares to make a frame and used it on the end part of a striplet I had cut  and covered wtih Iced Snow. 
Stupidly, when I was in UK I bought Creative Expressions Noble Pierced Rectangles and, I thought Squares too, but when I came to use them I had picked up Rectangles 'b' set instead of Squares. I felt like screaming, so cross with myself.
So I cut with X Cut dies and pierced the squares myself with  a needle stuck in cork!!!!!
The flower is cut with Perfect Peony die and stamped and coloured with Mica Paints.
Sentiment is stamped on a pierced tag I aquired from John Next Door.
Decorated up with ribbon, gems, bead pin, twine and pearls.
Pop over to the challenge blog and take a peep at other DT creations.

Afew have left a comment about the Google post the other day.
I think if you have a Google account and sign in Via Gmail you are OK.
I think some people may use Yahoo and this is changing, so you may not be able to comment.
I think.
I,m not too technically minded !!!!!

I just wanted to show you this orange tree that is across the road from our place, even John comments  how many oranges there are on this one tree,

I took another photo with the tree next to it, just to show how many oranges there are normally.

Hi Wendy
What a shame about the dies when you can't just pop out and change them.
Great card. I really must get that mask out.
Love the little flash of the striplet stamp.
I would've been out at night snaffling those naranjas lol!
