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

JND Gerbera

Good Morning All

The Craft Club that I run here in Spain has had to move venues due to Paul closing the bar after the death of his partner last month.
Our new place is upstairs and I cannot keep the boxes there that I left at the other bar.
These boxes contained my Cuttlebug and Val J's  Grand Calibur, assortment of papers and card etc. etc.
All this stuff is far to heavy and too much for me to carry up the stairs so I have decided to choose just one set of dies and one set of stamps along with the Cuttlbug for the ladies to use.
This is what I am taking with me this Friday - JND Gerbera Stamp set and co-ordinating dies.
Some inks and a brayer.

These are some of the flowers I made.
This started as I was making a card for a DT project
(which I cant show yet obviously)

The three cards below are all using the negatives from the diecuts backed onto patterned paper.
All the same colour scheme and all the bits used from the sheets I started.
I use left over pieces of paper to decorate the inside of my cards now as I'm trying not to have any leftovers.
Any pieces that are too small I use for butterflies  and die cut labels for sentiments.

Brilliant idea Wendy. I have often thought of this idea but haven’t got round to doing it yet.

Hi Wendy your card and the flowers are gorgeous. I do love that stamp and die set. The flowers come together so quickly. It is a such a shame you had to move venues. I hope it all works out for you. Take care. Hugs Jackie
