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 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019. 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

Pixie Parchment

Good Morning All

Well it is getting very hot here in Spain, I know the Uk is having a heat wave a present too.
I am getting up earlier to take Rico out for a walk.
This morning we were going out of the door at 7.19 then I was getting in the pool at 8.20, so he had a good 8 mins walk.
I take him out at 4pm just for a pee walk in the shade then a longer walk at night as the sun goes down.
When I craft, which I am doing quite alot of while footy is on, he sits under my desk watching the world go by from the window.


Here is the card I made using the Pixie Powder background I talked about on Tuesday.
Since starting Groovi it has awakened my Parchment itch.
I have done this design afew times over the years but I enjoy it as it involves alot of pricking and snipping.
This is how it starts, followed a pattern and embossed with a fine tool.

Coloured the flowers with felt tips on the reverse.

I had a parchment butterfly so decided to add that after I took the first photo.

I bought a Groovi plate with different butterflies and use any odd pieces of parchment to make butterflies now.

Happy Crafting

It is quite hot here in the UK too and after 2/3 years sypton free I am really suffering with hay fever despite the meds!!!Our cats are spending all day on the bed with all the windows open going out for an hour after dark when cooler even the ducks are hiding in the shade
I love your intricate parchment work very detailed and delicate and love the delicate colouring and beautiful butterflies
