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

Well In The Pink

Good Afternoon All

Second post from me today. I told you I could get down to crafting and blogging after doing the food shopping this morning.

I am determined to use alot of my older stash, like all of you I presume, I have loads  that I hardly ever use and cannot ever remember where it came from.

A4 sheet of flourished embossed ink card cut in half diagonally and scored and folded into three equal parts
Scalloped shapes from stash
Flowers quilled all different types, the roses are Chrislees (I still have to practice those)
Homemade pearl pin
I think border is a Martha Stewart that my good friend Chrislee from Docrafts sent to me - I cut it in half and stuck to the edges
Sentiment was freebie in Making Cards Magazine
