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

Happy Birthday Vals

Good Morning All

My two friends, Val J and Val C both have birthdays today.

I made Val J's card ages ago and posted it for an Allsorts DT card HERE.
It was A Christina box die and card in Black & White.
Well here is the card I made for Val C.

Sadly the embossing does not show up too well, but it is from the Papercraft Essentials magazine that Sandra from Cotswold Crafter Blog kindly posted to me.

And Val J had brought the Sentiment stamp set & Die to match,  to Craft Club so I stamped afew of them to take home.
Added afew butterflies.
A pretty card.

In the swap group I am in on Facebook, we have just completed a swap of making at least 3 Stick Pins and packaging them nicely.
Here are the ones I received from Debbie Vignola in Florida USA.

A gorgeous Pi cushion too.

And here is my parcel to Debbie.

These are lace Stick Pins.

I made this card using a Bugaboo digi and  JND heat embossed butterflies and dragonflies.
