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

Picture card

Good Morning All

Today is the day of the stall, all ready (I think).  I will let you know how it goes tomorrow but I am looking forward the seeing the tribute acts - Robbie Williams, Cher, Lady Gaga and Amy Winehouse - after we have finished selling.
 This one is for John (next door).  I keep urging him to start his own blog and I will  let you know when he does then you can pop over and visit.  His style is very different to mine - more shabby chic/grungy, but it is fun swapping ideas and craft stuff.
I made this with papers from Papermania, they were in the goody bag in May, along with the ribbon and the brad.  Charm from one of the cut up bracelets.  Yellow gems are Papermania and  white ones from Ebay.  Scalloped edge squares are Nellie Snellen - 2 large and 2 smaller mounted at diagonal angles.
I will do a tutorial over the weekend with pics to show how I made this using 1 piece of card.

I have added tutorial on 19th July.
