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

No Image Card

Good Afternoon All
I have, I think, done what I call, a messy card.
I love this type of card when I see them on other blogs but I find it quite hard as I like everything symetrical, if I but a gem on one corner, I have to put one on the other corner to balance it all out.  The little fairy charm is from our local China shop (there will be similar in my candy).  Homemade quilled flowers, crochet flower and bead pin.  The lace paper border has been in my stash forever.  Butterflies are Marianne and the leaves are Crealies.
What a miserable day here today, I came downstairs this morning to see this outside our kitchen window ------------

It had been raining through the night and it must have brought half the desert with it, everything was covered and wet and yukky.  So once I had had brekky I get my mop bucket and go outside to clear it up.  The, after lunch it flippin' well did it again, not quite as bad, but bad enough.  Hope it is nice wherever you are.
