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

Parchment & Groovi

Good Morning All

The other night, or rather, early morning, I couldn't sleep so I got up and brought two folders downstairs with all my old parchment patterns and magazines in to have a good sort out.

I found this pattern which I have made afew times before.
It is alot of snipping but it is a special card for one of my Craft Club ladies who is going through  a tough time.
I added the sentiment using the Groovi system, which is great for this.
I backed it onto Clarity designer paper.

She loved it and it brightened her day.
I put to inserts inside so that there was room for us all to write a message of support for her.

You may have had a quick glimpse of this on Monday, abit of a cockup with publishing!!!!!

I can't begin to think how long all that snipping took Wendy but so, so pretty and sure the lady loved it.

Hi Wendy, this is ever so lovely! The detail is so elegant and I'm sure Helen loved this card so much ! I finally took a chance to say hello as I've been peeking at it - we have many friends in common! But your blog name really made me look - my husband was born and raised in Salamanca so every time I see your Spanish Crafter, I smile! And my mum was born and raised outside of London. New follower now! Take care! xx
