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

Bugs, Butterflies, Bees for Allsorts

Good Morning All
Allsorts Challenge this week is hosted by Tracy Mouse and the theme is
Bugs, Butterflies, Bees.

As you know, my John bought me the Groovi Starter kit for my Birthday which is tomorrow, but I have had my pressy for a while.
I did get some extra plates with it and this is one of them, pretty dragonflies and blossoms.
I coloured on the wrong side of the parchment and matted and layered.



This one is the same plate just different colours.

I added a  bow with a butterfly charm.

Prize
Rare Earth set of stamps
*****************
My Craft Club Ladies treated me to a lovely lunch yesterday.
Mores cards and pressies waiting to be opened tomorrow.
But I must thank them for the generous Joanna Sheen voucher.

Hi Wendy, beautiful card. The groovi has never appealed to me, although my friends have the sets and I've tried theirs. I love the look of it, but don't like doing it!! Janice xx http://createdbyjan.blogspot.com

Happy Birthday for tomorrow
You’re really mastering Groovi I would love to try it but I know I’d fall in love with it and really cannot justify spending on a different craft idea
