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

Gills Christmas card NOT

Good Morning All
This card is one I made for Mum to give to my sister, but when I came to pack my case the other day, I couldn't find it, so I must have taken it to the fayre and sold it!!!!
So flippin' annoyed about it.
So I  had to make another!!!

I used an assortment of Pixie Powders for the background, 
I think it was Gold, Firework Burst and Aqua Lagoon
Phill Martin Corner Sentiments
CE Poinsettia die and stamp  on vellum
John Lockwood Poinsettia Christmas Wishes stamp
Sue Wilson Pierced Squares for the frame

I love this poinsettia, heat embossed onto vellum

One of my stick pins with a star charm added.

Oh well, Gill, this is what you could have had LOL.

Someone got a bargain when they bought this one.
Off on my travels now, UK here I come with my thermals !!!!

Hi Wendy
