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

GDT for Penny Black & Happy Sunday

Good Morning All

It is my turn again to GDT for Penny Black & more Challenge, run by my team leader at Allsorts, Brenda.
I used this Hollyhocks stamp, coloured with Tim Holtz ink pads and my blender pens from Clarity.
The paper is from Folksy Florals by Tonic, that I picked up in UK in a sale.
Cygnus die by CE for the border.

Onto Happy Sunday Post-
My challenge for the ladies this week is a sketch.
My card.
I bought some printed cards from our new craft shop and this is one of them.
I coloured with my new Polychromo pencils

Sketch to follow

They have two weeks for this one as John and I are going to Mums on Thursday for a flying visit to see his mum too.
My challenge for the Club ladies last week was to use Kraft card which I gave them.

My cards

The ladies made some gorgeous and very innovative cards, here they are.

And the name drawn was Denise this week but Dawn won the raffle, so lady luck smiling on Dawn again.
This is Helen, a lady that joined my group afew weeks ago.
She is more a sewer than a paper crafter and afew weeks ago I showed a material exploding box that she had made, and here she is with two felt mice and finished off this week.
Aren't they cute, the mice I mean.

These are the gifts I gave out on Friday.
Before I added a butterfly wrap!!!

Enjoy your Sunday
