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

Notebook & Card

 Good Morning All

This is a card I made using a digital kit from Taylormade4U called Rust & Roses.

It had a flip on the front with another pic underneath.



I also made a notebook for Tess, she loved the one I took for her last year so I thought I would make her another one.
Here is the video and all links for the kit and shop are on there.

Thanks for visiting.

Happy Sunday Challenge

 Good Morning All

I decided on a Bingo chart for the challenge on Friday.

This is the card I made using a stencil from Clarity which I inked through then went round the leaves with a Micron fine liner pen.


I used another stencil for this one but didnt go around with a pen, just used green oxide and a red one.

I went with Square Circle Xmas on both.


So I used Christmas,  Circle,  Square

Chart

I found these wafer biscuits in Aldi for the gifts this week and they were quite delicious as John and I had to sample them of course!!!

Back to Groovi

 Good Morning All

My Groovi classes started again last week after a break for the summer.

This is a very quick card I made using the monthly plate from Clarity.

No colouring just a little white work on the flower petals.

with the Groovi system is is so easy to make a lovely card so easily.

And, although the plate is small I made it into a 7x7 card with a couple of layers of card.
