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

White Elegance

Good Morning All
Wow we had a great thunder storm in the night, gosh was it loud!!! And there must have been  dusty rain with it as everything is covered in red dust this morning.  John had to go down and bring the cushions off the outside sofa in. So this morning it is all muggy and clammy, so fans going full blast trying to keep dry and cool.  My daughter in law Facebooked me last night and asked if I could send her some sunshine, oh how I wish I could.  But I dont think she will want too much as she now only has five and a half weeks to go and I would imagine she is getting abit uncomfortable. 
I am putting together some CANDY to celebrate the birth and I will bring it with me to the UK in August (to post) when I come over to see baby.  I will post a pic as soon as I have it sorted, so I hope you will all join in.

Todays card I have just completed.  I am putting together some really ornate cards for a table sale in July at the local bar for a fund raiser they are holding to help the local poor families.

5 x 7 card blank folded to  make easel
Wood grain white card for easel back
Embosssed heavy white paper
Grey ribbon and charm from a wedding invitation I recieved last year
