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 a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Flowers

Hi all

Here are some of the flowers I made using my new Spellbinders die.  I used 160gm paper and then a green Distress ink to colour the edges and Anitas Tacky glue to put them together. The first picture shows the paper once it has been cut out, then you twist it up to make the flower.  I have made more flowers using my punches and one borrowed from JL next door.  I,ve coloured these with some ink pens I have had for years.
It is another lovely day here in Spain, although yesterday was cloudy and abit chilly.
I thought I would show you a picture of the gorgeous view from our back roof.  I love looking at these mountains any time of the day.  One day this week they were spectacular as the sun was peeping through the clouds and was highlighting certain  of parts of them, they looked wonderful.  We are so lucky living here.
The picture does not do the mountains justice, they are much nearer than they look on here.

Your spiral flowers are great, I can't seem to get the hang of them, mine are always too tight & yours are perfect. Love the photo, it's nice to see a bit of sun albeit by proxy :-)

Hi, wonderful flowers aren,t they. I have the Marianne version but as yet haven't got the hand of things. Must have another go. Have passed the dreaded cold onto Martin, and he seems to have it worse than me ! I'm not bloghopping this weekend too much to do. Have a good week, Jean.
