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

Happy Sunday

Good Morning All

Hope all is good with you.
My John still suffering and my back not any better.
So we are both feeling sorry for ourselves!!!!

Here is my card for this weeks sketch

The silver letters on blue card are punched from Mirri card using a handheld alphabet punch.
These have been on my desk for ages so decided to use them as I need to replenish my stock of all types of card.

This weeks sketch,  I had to do some by hand as my laptop has fallen out with my printer AGAIN.

I gave each of the ladies a gift box

I added three little Mint chocs, very similar to After Eights.

Last weeks challenge was to use Ribbon with a bonus of adding a charm.
Ribbons from Crafty Ribbons
I love seeing all the different ways  the ladies use the ribbon.

And it was Val C who was drawn but as she hadn't used a charm she did not get the bonus prize!!!
I just want to show you this card that Jen made at class on Friday, she does make some lovely shaped cards.

And it folds flat for posting too.

Hi Wendy,
I do hope you and John are soon feeling better.
Brilliant card and such a sweet oval image with such a lovely sentiment too.
Yum those gift boxes are very scrummy with chocs inside.
Super creations from your craft challenge ladies, and Jens pyramid card is stunning.
I had a template for that somewhere in my crafty stash I'm sure.
Found my camera lead at last after going through boxes and boxes it was in my bedside drawer for safty.
You think I would have rememebered sooner and saved me lots of work yesterday, and now I too have a back ache.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
