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

Curls and/or Swirls for MAWTT

Good Morning All

Crikey it is soooooo cold here, we had snow yesterday and it was so funny as the Spanish people were coming out and taking photos and the old people were standing at their doors looking out in amazement!!!  I have been told that they have not had snow in this area for over 90 years.
There are loads of posts on Facebook of beaches covered in snow and abit more in and they have had about 4 or 5 inches.
Yesterday we had snow, a little bit of sunshine (you could see the sun shining on the mountains at the back of our village)
Then the rain came and last night 2 thunderstorms!!!!
Now it is raining and cold, so cold.
I cant move from the fire and go in my craft room so it is crafting on my knee!!!!
Moving Along With The Times Challenge is hosted by Hazel on Team B.
She would like to see Curls or Swirls.
I used my ever faithful Sissix 'Iron Gate' die on top of John Lockwoods kitchen roll/Pixie Powder technique. 
CE Ornate Oval for the sentiment.
All mounted onto card coloured with Gilding Polish.

I added a gorgeous Tattered Lace Butterfly with some pearl dots on body.

I stuck one of my bead danglers in top corner and some gems and pearls in each corner,
I have to have symmetry!!!!

Wow! I was wondering about whether you ever had snow there Wendy… not for 90 years!! That is amazing - no wonder it created such a stir !!
I’m doing a Tapestry at the moment and it’s great as it keeps your knees warm while you’re doing it!! ;-)
I had to zoom in to look at your card in detail as it is SO pretty with all those fab pearls and swirls. I Love the colours… really beautiful.
Hope you are keeping well
Love Sue xx
