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

Allsorts & Crafty Friends & MAWTT Challenges

 Good Morning All

Some sad news and some good news today, but first,

all three of  challenges that I am on the Design teams for start today.

I have found, that instead of doing separate posts for each one, it is better to do one post as people don't generally visit all three, just one post, so I am putting all on one post.

Ok first is Moving Along With The Times. and the theme has been chosen by Jenny.

A Bouquet of Flowers.

As you will have read on many previous posts, I really am trying to use some of my old stuff and this topper is very old and was from a company called Nicecrane.

I have had a look around and cannot see that they are still in business but I have afew of the coloured digis.

All bits used from my stash, all precut, ready to go.

Pop along to the challenge blog to check out the rest of the makes by the DT.

Ellie has chosen a theme of
Spring Blossoms
Again, I found this Nicecrane image in my stash (trying to get old stuff used up)
Now I count Tulips as a spring flowers even though the seed packet says Autumn, which  means they are planted in Autumn.
I matched the backing paper with the colours of the tulips and kept it very geometrical.
I love how it turned out.

Our Sponsor is Chocolate Baroque and they have shows on Hochanda  this week.

Chocolate Baroque is a small independent art and craft company, based in the historic market town of Barnard Castle in County Durham in the North-East of England and is owned and run by Lesley and David Wharton. 

We design our own range of natural rubber art stamps from hand drawn originals, complemented by typography from Lesley.  The rubber stamps are made in house, by David, to our very exacting quality standards. And nothing gets past his eagle eye!

Two prizes on offer today  -  Chocolate Baroque limited edition Fragrant Honeysuckle and Butterfly Tree

Lesley will be back on our screens on Friday 7th May with two shows at 9am and 1pm, there will be different stamps in both shows so make a note in your diaries.


Now, finally,  onto Crafty Friends Challenge where we have a sketch to follow

Our sponsor this week is All Dressed Up

I went Pink - I used a decoupage flower that I bought from Create & Craft when I first started crafting about 15  years ago.
I used am embossed butterfly background and the ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons
I added 3 parchment punched flowers to match the sketch.

Sadly, this will be the last challenge for Crafty friends as Diane is taking a break.
But the good news is, I have been accepted onto the Design Team for

The first challenge goes live on 5th May.
It is a very diverse challenge  covers all types of crafts, so quite exciting.
