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

First Challenge

Good Afternoon All
This is the results of the little challenge I have going with John Next Door.  He challenged me first by giving me the frame shown here and asked if I fancied doing a little 'MOJO'  challenge every week, one week he will give me some goodies to play with and the next week I will do the same see here for more details and pics. We dont have to use every item and we can add other bits from our own stash.
This is what I sorted out for this week and this is what I came up with.
Two cards ---------------

First one -------
 I split the card front and used the acetate to join again
Stamped a sentiment on one of the tags and used two more tags at the top with one of the metal charm and ribbon.

Put the picture inside so you can see it through the acetate.
Card two -------------
Used the negative die cut, again, to see pretty paper through it
 Used some squares of matching paper to do  some teabag folding to make half a flower and the gold silver printed fabric, folded and layered,  to make the other half of the flower.  Used the rest of the ribbon for the centre.  Made some corners and flowers from the foiled paper.
John told me he found this quite difficult when I spoke to him yesterday, so I will be very interested to see what he comes up with.  This will be a regular Sunday date for us so keep watching.  I will have to miss one Sunday when I am on my Hollie day though, which I cant wait for.
