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 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019. 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

Anything Goes for Craft Rocket

Good Morning All
Craft Rocket Challenge this time is a nice easy Anything Goes.
I used Sissix Iron Gate die.
John Lockwood Nasturtium Everyday Elements Stamp with White Emboss Powder.
Ribbon, stick pins and parchment punched flowers.
A new technique (for me) for the backing (see below) (I may have blogged this before !!!!!!)

I saw Julia Watts on Hochanda back in December and as soon as I saw her do this technique I had to  dash into my craft room to try it.
She spread Cosmic Shimmer glue on a piece of acetate, added Pixie Powders and some glitter then backed it with scrunched up tissue paper.
This is a sheet using different colours of Pixies and glitters.

Back later for another post.
