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 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

New Fold

Good Morning All
Here is a card I made following this tutorial from Sandra, Cotswold Crafter HERE.
It is for my Johns Daughters Birthday and I,m very pleased how it turned out.
I used Tied Together Emboss folder
CE Cosmic Shimmer for pearls dots
S/B Edgabilities for centre band
Not sure whose the 'With Love' die is (from my craft meet)

Here is one  using twice the size of paper.
I thought it looked abit like a Christmas Tree
I am getting into making my Christmas card and using all bits from my box that I got out of the spare wardrobe last week.
I am not buying anymore Christmas stuff,
well, not until I get to Ally Pally in September !!!!!
If anyone is going I would love to see you as I am helping a friend out, but too busy on Saturday so Sunday would be great if you are going.

Sad day for me today, Lucas would have been 7 years old.
R.I.P darling boy.
