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

Good Evening All

First swim of this year in the pool today and it was lovely.  Very warm here now and getting warmer by the day, and so hot at night.

I made this card for a male recipient.  I dont do enough ·man· cards because I love doing pretty pastels.
I know its got gems and a bow but I still think you could give it to a man.

Stamp was free on a craft mag and coloured with Promarkers
Charm recycled from  a bracelet
Paper and card from stash
Lemon satin ribbon
White and parchment swirls are bits left over from a butterfly punch
Leaf diecut
Sentiment - peeloff

  2. Hi Wendy. Had thought for a split second that I had put the wrong blog page up. Now where have I seen that background before? LOL.

    Lucky you getting into a warm pool. I am in our local one twice a week and it is always freezing!!!!!!!!

    Men's cards are a necessity too and this one works. Lovely card. Thanks for joining us at I ♥ Promarkers this week.
