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

Crafty Ribbons and Crafty Friends

Good Morning All

Crafty Friends Challenge this time is Lace or Ribbon or both.

Well I have lots so I used both.
I used Gilding Polish and LOTV paper for my backing.
Lace and Ribbon from Crafty Ribbons
I even used tiny waste pieces  on the sides under the image.

Sponsor is Sherri Baldy who provided us with this lovely image called Chloe.

It is my turn to show a Crafty Ribbons piece for their Facebook Page and their Inspiration blog.
I adore Seam Binding and Crafty Ribbons have a fab selection HERE
On this card I used a Lilac and pale Cream and weaved it on a piece of card.
Then I stuck it onto a card blank, 5x7.

I tied some more into a bow and added one of my dangle charms
Stamped a sentiment from JND and added some paper flowers and afew butterflies.

Happy Crafting.
Back later with another post for Allsorts.

3 of my  DT works have fallen on the same day!!!!!

Parchment Snipping.

Good Morning All

I have been practising my snipping on my parchment work.
All the Clarity team seem to have different preferences for tools and the way they snip.
These are afew flowers and dragonflies I have cut out.
I think I am getting  there.
I have a lady coming to Craft Club today  who wants to play with the Groovi system.
I shall try to remember to take some pics and show you  what she creates.

Here are a couple more cards I have made with my Groovi.

Two pretty cards for the charity box.

Crafty Ribbons


I am stepping in for another Crafty Ribbons  DT member this morning.

This is a sweet Baby Girl card I made using Crafty Ribbons Satin Ribbon.
As you know, I make these bows and flowers while watching TV.

All matted onto pretty paper, added a charm.

Here are some more made from various colours all available HEREhttps://www.craftyribbons.com/satin_ribbon/494/Category.aspx

Groovi Backgrounds

Good Morning All
This published by my mistake yesterday, so here it is again on the correct day.

When I make my Groovi cards I like to mount the parchment onto rainbow card or paper.
I have only afew sheets left so I decided to have another go at making some background papers myself.
Great fun!!!!
Here is an assortment made by  using tissue papers, Distress inks and water.
I then used spray glue to stick the tissue paper onto thin white card.

Looks quite good with afew wrinkles in too.

Here's a New Home card I made with 1 piece of it.
The Groovi plate is my free monthly one for June which I get for being a member of the Clarity Groovi Club.

I thought this plate would also be good for Christmas cards too.

Here's a coupe of pics of Rico.
He is going for a hair cut today,  you can see how long it is on his ears!!

JS Dies for Men cards

Good Morning All
One day I decided to make some 'Men' cards.
I pulled out my Joanna Sheen Signature dies - Plane, motorbike, car and footballer.
Sometimes this is the way I like to craft, Pull out some paper, or card, afew dies and get to work.
All with either buttons, gems and / or charms

Quick cards really.

A couple more Wednesday.
