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

Open Envelope

Good Morning All
Having a wonderful time here in the UK but had limited internet access at first, which was a bind but my sister altered it to unlimited so we are back on track.
Having lots of time with Noah and eagerly awaiting Hollie tomorrow evening.  Was going to take Noah to Southport,  around Marine Lake this afternoon, but it is raining, so we will have to see how it goes. 
 Taking Johns Mum home this morning, she has been spending afew days with my Mum, they get on very well together, which is good.



I pulled this one out of the files to show you.  It is made, following a tutorial from Beccy HERE, she has loads of them and some gorgeous digis too.  It is like a card within an open envelope.  The card is some I won in some candy, crochet flower on front and Cherry Lynn roses.  Ticket sentiment mounted onto X Cut labels die and twine tied through ends.
