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

Sketch & Craft Club Gifts

Good Morning All
Wasn,t the wedding lovely. I do love all the pomp and ceremony.
I am not a massive Royalist but I did love Diana and her boys seem to be lovely, grounded young men.
 I admire Harry alot.
They make a beautiful couple.

A couple of cards I have made for the sketch this week.
Leafy montage emboss folder.
Topper from a magazine and cut in half diagonally.

Another one, sort of keeping the general layout but using different shapes.




A little offcut from a Groovi make.
Karen asked me what I use to colour my parchment - 
I use water colour pens and do it on the reverse of my work.



This is sketch to follow. 





************************

Craft Club gifts this week were a lovely box taught to me by one of my ladies, Jen.

I have looked on You Tube and not seen this style, it is abit fiddly but lovely.


They are about 3" square but can be made to any size.

I included a battery Tealight and a couple of stick pins.

Hope you are all having a good weekend.
