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

Crafty Ribbons Unicorn Launch & Penny Black GDT & Happy Sunday

Good Morning All

Crafty Ribbons have launched some wonderful Unicorn ribbons this week and here are my two cards using  two of the ribbons, available HERE
They both feature the Advent calendar Ribbon  which I cut and made pockets.
This one I covered the number with a crinkled poinsettia and slipped a little card in the pocket.
The note has the ribbon with the word Love on.
I added a band of the narrow ribbon across the bottom.
All matted onto a mirri circle and embossed snowflake card.

This one I made into a Baby's  1st Christmas card using the No. 1 from the Advent Ribbon.
Similar to the first card just different colour Mirri.
I added a sweet little bell charm to the narrow ribbon.

To be in with a chance of winning a bundle of ribbons, visit the Crafty Ribbons Inspiration blog or Facebook page and enter a comment on the posts  on  1st October


As you may know,  being an Allsorts DT member we can participate in the Penny Black at Allsorts DT too.
I used one of Penny Blacks older stamps 3916K The Light Brigade
Coloured with Polychromos.
Matted onto embossed Pink card
Sentiment Ribbon from Crafty Ribbons
Narrow satin ribbon from my craft shop and added two jingle bell charms
Doily die from Crafters Companion
Left the sentiment blank as I think I shall use this card for one of my Grand kids and will add their name.

Pop over to the challenge blog and see all the other design team makes

My challenge card for my club on Friday was a Tic Tac Toe chart.

On my card I used Ribbon Lace (well the Groovi border is lacey) and Green

Craft Club Gifts.
I gave the ladies a small Pen Key ring this week.
Very handy to keep in your handbag and I think I shall keep one for myself.


Last weeks challenge was a sketch.

My card





and the name that was drawn was Eve.
And Dawn won the raffle this week.

Enjoy your day.
