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

Recycled Friends cards

Good Morning All

I,m sure you are all the same, whenever I receive a handmade card, I cannot throw it out.
Obviously I cant keep them all, so I recycle them and they go in the charity box.

Here are two.

The flower art on this one is from Sandra, Cotswold Crafter.
She very kindly posted a couple of craft magazines to me. and she enclosed a little card too.
I used it as a topper for this pretty Birthday card.

The second one was from Jen, one of my ladies at my Craft Club, she gave me this Thank You card after Christmas.
I added some butterflies and altered the centre. 
She had used one of my ribbon flowers on it.

Thank you ladies and I hope you don't mind me recycling your cards.
We had a lovely day yesterday.
After opening my Mothers Day cards, I took Rico for his walk, so warm at 9am.
We both took him out later as we were going out for lunch with some friends, normally I would not take him out twice in the morning.
He is really good when we leave him, he will have to be as my John goes to UK tomorrow for a footy match on Saturday, so Rico will have to be left while I go to my quilling and Craft Club.

I do exactly the same Wendy as I could never throw a hand made card away.
Glad Rico is settling down.
Love Valx
