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

Pretty Pearl

Good Morning All
I made this card a little while ago for a commission, someone referred to me by Linda from Animal Aid.  She wanted a 'Pearl Anniversary' card but very pretty.  I always think that when we buy or make an anniversary card we aim for the lady more than the man, therefore, pretty and feminine.

I used pearlised card in a slightly off white shade.  Marianne LR0236 die for the gorgeous trellis shape and an embellishment from stash (years old, bought in USA).
Marianne  flowers LR0106 and Spellbinders Bitty Blossom and I put pearls in the centres.
I printed a sentiment on the computer and added ribbon and butterfly.

I made a box/ envelope using my Crafters Companion board and decorated it with a homemade crochet heart with a pearl centre.

Change of Subject ------------

I got these last night

 I just LOVE this one.  The look on her face-'If you DARE to pinch my chocolate'
I know it wasn't the choccy I took her as I bought white chocolate!!!!!!

Another change of subject -------------
  A couple of pics I took yesterday when we went for a walk at La Mata beach, people swimming on this one.
 And sunbathing here on the lovely beach.
     This is a beautiful beach and gets extremely busy in July and August.  We love going for a walk along here as there is a board walk all the way along.
