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

Steampunk for MAWTT

Good Morning All

Moving Along With The Times Challenge is hosted by Jackie Reader this week and her theme is


Now I dont really do this type of card but luckily, I found some papers in a used pad that I bought on a declutter site.
One of my craft club ladies, Jen, lent me her cog dies, so I cut a few in both gold Mirri and black and layered them up.

Tied the sentiment on with twine wrapped around the mat.

That's as good as it's gonna get!!!!

I,m winging my way to Corby to my younger sons today.
Really looking forward to seeing them all, especially Hollie and Tess.
Then I am meeting up with John Next Door at Hochanda studios as they are quite near to Corby.
Really excited about seeing John again as it has been a while.

Like you I don't do steampunk, but I think you did a better job than me. Your background paper is ideal with all your cogs. Enjoy your time with your son and his family, and when you meet up with John Christine xx
