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

More Tonic

 Good Morning All

I have a few more of the Tonic Sentiment Toppers today on Fractured style cards, this is a great way of using scraps too.

These are quick cards using these toppers,  once I have made the base.

I hope you like them.

Moving Along With The Times Challenge time and the theme is

CAS (Clean & Simple)

Helen chose this theme and I think its a good one as I know many struggle with CAS as I do.  

We all want to add more embellishments but here is my version.

Abit of stencilling and a stamped branch and sentiment.

I did do some embossing in the top left corner too

I think it passes for CAS dont you??

Summer Florals for MTTC

 Good Morning All

My Time To Craft Challenge starts this morning and the theme is

Summer Florals 

chosen by Alyson.

I used a digi backed onto bright yellow card and I embossed the top left corner.

I mounted this onto a leafy green paper, again, backed onto yellow card.

Added a yellow bow and a sentiment.

This was a flower in full bloom on a bar terrace across the road from us.  Isn't it gorgeous.  I used it on one of my Collage Journal pages too.

We have a worldwide DT so why not pop over and visit them.

Sentiment Toppers

 Good Morning All

I bought a couple of sets of Sentiment Toppers from my local shop when they were on offer, they  are made by Tonic.

I thought they would be great for quick cards and they were.  These are smallish cards, 5x5, so will be going in the boxes I make for Raffle prizes.

There were a mix of sentiments, Birthday, Thanks Get well etc.

Again, I used leftovers  - bits of embossed card and odd pieces.

Do you like them??
