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

Man Card Alert!!!

Good Morning All
I,m sure alot of you are the same as me and prefer to make Lady cards instead of Man cards.
Well I decided to take the bull by the horns and make afew.
This started because I found some card blanks I had won quite afew years ago from Creativity Magazine, they are 6 x 6 square and bright yellow!!!
I pulled some stuff from my stash onto my desk and got stuck in.
3 or 4 sheets of paper from this pad

Some papers from an LOTV paper pad.

Some toppers from an LOTV topper pad.

Here we go!!!!

These two are made from one topper.

            This is one topper cut in half
               then slightly overlapped.

Some tags, peeloffs and gems.

            This is cut into a square.

Bits of string and oddments of ribbon.

     And this one cut into three equal pieces.

              So enjoying myself, such fun.

More tomorrow.
