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

Feeling Better

Good Morning All

Feeling much better today, as I was yesterday thank goodness.  It has been a rough couple of days though.

Our little craft meeting went well yesterday morning, there was only five of us, but I think everyone enjoyed it.  There was a couple of ladies who are into scrap-booking rather than card making, which was great.  They brought some of their own stash to work with and were asked to bring some of their completed pages next week as the rest of us would like to see them and get into scrap-booking abit more.  Yesterday I showed them how to do the poinsettias  like these HERE.  And then they asked how I made the paper boxes like these HERE.  I think they all enjoyed the morning, I know I did, and hope to see afew more next week.
Fat club later this morning and I dont think the scales will be kind to me!!!!!!  Five and Six course meals each evening on the cruise ship do not do me any favours!!!!!! but they all tasted good!!!!!

                                                  *********************************

I made this lovely card the before I went away and thought I would show it to you as it incorporates a Tim Holtz flower using the same method as talked about above.


I used - 
Silver mirri card embossed with 'swiss dots' folder
Silver edged ribbon
Sentiment from stash (ages old)
Recycled Christmas card with crochet edge

Hi Wendy,

What a stunning card, I love how you have, well it looks like you have sewn the crochet edge onto the image, not sure if that's what you have done but it looks great. I adore the flowers, so so pretty.

So glad you are feeling a little better and that your classes have gone so well.

Love & Hugs
