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

Craft Club Gifts & Sketch

Good Morning All

As some of you may know, I give my Craft Club girls a sketch each week, just a little challenge for them but I also share it on my Facebook Page too.
Anyone is more than welcome to enter, either comment on Facebook with a pic or email one to me.

Firstly though, here is the little gifts I have made for my ladies this week, a little Tissue Pouch.

I loved making these and I hope they like them too.

Now onto the sketch.
I have starting drawing these myself with Office Draw.

If you fancy having a go, take no notice of the colours, just the layout.

Here is my interpretation
I used one of John Lockwoods Circle Stamps, cut out wth CE Noble Circle die

I used the off cuts to decorate the inside.
My second one is using a LOTV Topper
Bow and butterfly made by me and some buttons with Twine bows

I made this one for a challenge on Facebook too so if anyone is in the same group you may have already seen it, apologies.

I draw a name from everyone that makes a card and I will post out a little gift.
