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 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. 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

Easel Card

Good Morning all

The weekend is here again already, I dont know how I ever found time to go to work, life is so busy.

My card today is yet another easel on 5" x 7" blank.  Tilda dipping her toes.  More punched and quilled flowers, pearls, gems ribbon and beads on wire.  Happy Birthday sentiment in the corner.  The cards I make like this I want to keep them all and not give to the charities because I think they are so lovely.
  I have been asked by another animal charity to give them a supply so I am busy getting a load together to send there next week.  There are so many abandoned dogs and cats here it,s awful how some people treat them.
Also, a friend of mine in the UK is doing a bike ride through India later in the year, in aid of womens cancer, so I am going to bring as many cards as I can fit in when we come back in May for her to sell in her cafe to raise funds for this too.

I am entering this into:

Papertake Weekly Challenge # 66 - Sketch
Simply Magnolia - Dies/punches and Ribbon
Crazy Challenge - Add a sentiment
I Love Promarkers # 110 - Bead It
Creative Mondays # 4 - Anything Goes
