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

The sketch this week will run for nearly three weeks as I am going to UK on Thursday to visit family and John Next Door.
I will miss Craft Club for 3 weeks as the bar is closed the week I get back and I'm away for 2 Fridays.
This is the sketch to follow

I made the background under the parchment by inking through a leaf stencil.
I embossed the dark green card with a wood grain EB

A pretty two layered parchment butterfly

Gifts for my Craft Club ladies are small notebooks

These are the last of the goodies I brought back from the UK last time I was at Ricks, so my trip is coming at the right time for me to stock up again.
I'd buy stuff here but I can find more  bargains in UK!!!!

The ladies and the bar staff loved these so need to get more on my visit!!!

Last weeks sketch
Basically, just make a rectangular card.

My cards I showed last Sunday

Denise was the name drawn again.
We were out last night with friends, Jacky and Alan.
Alan is the Spanish teacher John and I used to go to and he is retiring in a couple of weeks and they are moving back to UK.
So sorry to see them go but this happens very often here, after so many years, people have had enough and go back.
I wonder if we ever will !!!!!!?
