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

Christmas card for Hollie

Good Morning All
Weather has changed abit here, it is dull today and we have had abit of rain.
I made this card following a tutorial I found here, the blog is called Homemade With Love, Gems and Pretty Things, and I came across it whilst doing my DT bit for Forever Friends.  I tried making this card from Making cards magazine last year and the instructions were not very clear (I did email them and asked but got no reply) and I am sure I have still got the original in a drawer somewhere w hich I will try to finish now. Anyway, this one was so easy to make and I think it looks great.


The pictures are abit bright as the flash kept going off as it,s abit dull here today.
I used my Forever Friends decoupage as I love the FF bears and then decorated to my hearts content.
