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

In the Blue

Good Afternoon All
 We have been painting and it is crippling my back so I have surrendered and got an estimate from a decorator to do my craft room for me instead of doing it ourselves - 60 euros so well worth it.  It will probably take us another week to finish the upstairs room we have started as we have t do so many coats as it was once an outside wall that has been glassed in, so it has a very rough texture.

I decided to show you this card today.  I made it a couple of weeks ago and the sentiment is from a pack that has been in my stash forever, I cant even remember where I bought it from.
The turquoise backing paper  (which has glitter on it)  and the wire flower is from some stuff given to me, as is the shiny paper that I have made the bitty blossom flowers from.  Narrow satin ribbon and a homemade bead pin complete it, oh, I forgot the gorgeous corner cut from waste card and  gems in each of  the corners for a bit of sparkle.  Hope you like it.
