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

Friends Birthday

Good Morning All
As I mentioned on Friday, my friends both named Val and  have Birthdays on 14th Feb.
So here is one card I made for Val Craft ( that is my name for her, to distinguish between the two).

I had to make an envelobox for it as it, obviously, wouldn't fold flat.

I thought these bright colours woud cheer her up.

Whenever I use coloured paper for an insert, any off cuts go into my quilling box, then, when I am in the  mood, I sit and make  a load of quilled flowers.

The shaped card is some leftovers from a Hunkydory set.

I still love making this style of  card.
