About Me

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

Triangle Card

Good Morning All
Last week at our craft club, Jen showed us how to make a Triangle card, this is mine.

I made the base there and decorated it up once I got home.

As there is nowhere to write on it, I added a little tag and attached it with a ribbon and charm.

And it folds flat to go in the post.

Now onto winter.  It is that time of year here, when it is warmer outside than indoors This is the fire we have in our living room, here in Spain.  It uses a calor gas bottle and last year we did not use it at all, it was so mild here.  Well this year we have had it on a couple of times already and had to go and buy a new bottle as the one in it was empty.
13.90 euros for a filled bottle, couldn't believe it, last time we got one filled, 2 years ago, it cost us 18 or 19 euros.
It's not very often things come down in price but to come down so much, WOW.

Keep warm.

Love the way you've decorated this triangle card. Still haven't done anything with mine yet so thanks for the idea.

We're still using last year's gas bottle but so glad to hear they've come down in price.
Bye for now.
Love Valxxx

Hi wendy,
what a very gorgeous shaped card.
I love your wonderful design of this and all the wonderful embellishments.
I also love your heater it looks fab.
We have a calor gas heater to top up our storage heaters as they never work well when it's very cold, and if the sun shines it's too darn hot as you can't stop them once they are working because they take 24 hours to cool down and the same to warm up.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi Wendy
How unusual. I thought it was a box at first but great it folds flat and you've decorated it beautifully. So, 10€ per year for heating and now 7€? Oh, if only lol! I remember chatting to John on a Sunday when he was out there and he'd be sat on the balcony/outside as it was warmer than being inside in Winter.
