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

Happy Sunday

Good Morning All

My card for the sketch below.
I used a Pixie Powder background I made with acetate and kitchen roll and glitter.
The Christmas tree is a Penny Black stamp
I have not added the sentiment yet as I haven't got all my Christmas stuff out yet.
Isn't the Gingerbread man charm cute?
All matted onto Silver mirri card.

This is the Sketch but take no notice of the Sentiment, I could not cross it out in my editing.


Craft Club gifts this week were just just a little tiny box with a Tealight candle inside, scented, of course.
And I did add a couple of homemade embellishments.

Last Weeks Sketch was this one.

My card
with gorgeous printed ribbon from Crafty Ribbons
