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 Afternoon All
Quick post today as it is Spanish Lesson this afternoon.
I made this card yesterday and am quite pleased with it, I used leftover scraps  of paper and card, inked all the edges and added Marianne butterflies.

John Next Door asked if I would fancy doing a challenge each week, just me and him, to keep our mojo going.  We will take it in turns to supply an assortment of bits to make a card or two with, I am to go first and this is what came up with.
I wont list everything but there are 2 sheets of hand made paper in lilac and pink, a negative diecut, gold/silver flowery material, ribbon, paper with gorgeous pics on and bits of cut out card and paper and gems.

I,m not sure whether we are going to show the cards this Sunday or following Sunday so keep your eyes peeled.  Johns style is quite different to mine but he has been doing quite afew pretty ones just lately.  Pop over and have a look.  I think this will be fun.
