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

Sunday Mojo 14

Good Morning All
It was my turn to resent John  (this should read present but John thought it was quite funny, people left me comments and I did not know what they meant until I asked John,  stupid me)  with the goods this week and I gave him some patterned blue card and some bits that were given to my by Linda (Animal Aid Charity) and I did not know what they were for.  In the picture it is the cream shaped card that I have folded along the score lines and the piece with slots.  I thought John may know what to do with it but he was a loss too so it will be interesting to see what he comes up with, so pop over here and have a peep when you have looked at my creations of course!!!!!

I pulled out some little die cuts too and some pre-cut book marks (I think).

Here's what I came up with.  By the way, I have another craft fair coming up on 15th July at the local English bar, it is all part of the village fiesta fortnight, so I am trying to get my stock up to fill my table.

I made 3 bookmarks and 3 cards -----

This is part of the cream card that I did not know what it was for.  It was already pre-scored on these lines.  Added the metal flowers, a couple of gems and a couple of feathers.
Totally Papercrafts # 171 - Feeling Blue
Quirky Crafts # 12 - Fold It
Squirrel & Fox # 46 - Use metal

This is for John,  LOL he HATES peel-offs, a standing joke between us,  but I have loads and still keep using them occasionally, but I don't buy any now and haven,t for a long time.

These are my 3 book marks, I put beads on one, a charm on another and a tassle on the last one.  I put acetate in the middle before I glued together, again with some peel-offs.

2nd card, again pre-scored cream card and hung the sentiment in the middle.

 Amusing Challenge - Use twine or ribbon
Glitter & Sparkle # 37 - Use 3 of something

I only used the green card for this one.  I bought these die cuts  on E****, so stuck one over the green card and mounted on darker green card.

Added a home made bead thingy!!!  and a crochet flower and a freebie sentiment.

I hope you like them and I cant wait to see what John has come up with.

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend.
