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

Good Morning All

I had a lovely day yesterday for my Birthday.  We went for a walk on the coast in the morning after Johns friend had left to drive to Andorra. Then in the evening we went for a couple of drinks and  a couple of  friends joined us  and brought me these gorgeous flowers and gift.  After that just John and I went for an  Indian meal, yummy.

This is where we went for  walk, Cabo Roig.

Thanks to everyone for my Birthday wishes, cards and yummy presents from my John, Val in Spain and Lyn.

Moving Along With The Times Challenge this week has been set by my mate Ang, Mrs Duck, who is suffering from Chicken pox at present,  and she wants to see 'Texture' either dry or heat embossing or use texture paste.  Well, as I dont have any texture paste it had to be embossing.

I embossed some card from one of Johns beer cartons using   'Grand Woven' by Couture Creations.    I cut circles using S/B butterfly circles, added some old curtain material that has been cut off from hems, an odd piece of lace and a sewing kit you get in hotels.  Added lots of butterflies and some buttons with twine.
Hope you like it and will pop along and join us with this challenge.
