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

Good Morning All

We have been and  done the dreaded food shopping, how I hate doing it too.  So now I can get down to blogging and crafting - my fave things.
This is a fairly simple one as the image is one of Wellington embossed stickers
6 x 6 beige card blank
Corners from the Wellington pack as is the sentiment shape
Black gems are Papermania
Spotty paper from stash
Ribbons and brown shapes are all cut off bits which I never throw away, they can always be used somewhere

I would love to do a card making class, i would just give the ladies a bag of bits - paper, card buttons, ribbons, shapes that have been cut and bits used etc etc.  i think there would be some wonderful creations dont you?

One of my pet hates as well Wendy, I always think of all the other things I could be doing instead of trailing a shopping trolly round.

A very sweet card.
