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

Instead of a sketch this week
( 'cos my laptop has decided to fall out with my printer, so I cant print anything)
I gave my ladies some ribbon and buttons  from my Crafty Ribbon DT supply and my own.
I made up little bags with some extra bits in.

I have quite a stash as I won the Crafty Ribbons Challenge twice before I became  a DT member.
So if any of you would like to join in my little challenge, just create  using ribbon and buttons, just like the Moving Along With The Times Challenge  last Thursday.
Here is my little lot.

And here is the card I made, I didn,t use the Wagon ribbon, I added a Happy Birthday one instead.
 I had to add afew pearl hearts to hide some splodges of blue ink from when I was inking the edges.

At the Craft Club on Friday.

I have made many of these boxes before but afew of the ladies wanted to be shown how to make them.
This is mine that I made to take to the class to show how they can be decorated.
Here is a link to Christina Griffiths You Tube tutorial.

The gifts I gave my ladies on  Friday.

I added a choccy biscuuit and a couple of gems and a dangler.

I made the boxes, once again, following a tutorial from Pootles on You Tube.
I am running out of gifts that I bought in UK when I was at Ricks in February, so I will have to stock up soon.

On to last weeks sketch.

And the name drawn was Dawn, so she received a little gift from me.

If you want to play along with this weeks, just make a card or anything with ribbon and / or buttons on before Friday.

Hi Wendy,
don't you just hate computers and printers they seem to have a mind of their own.
Still this is a lovely challenge this week instead.
Your card is so fab and a great design and beautiful ribbons used.
Congrats to Dawn on her win and what very super entries too.
super pressies for your craft ladies.
I will try to enter this week as things are slowly getting back to normal if I know what that is. LOL.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
