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

Groovi Glitter

 Good Morning All

Yesterday was my Groovi class and we did glitter.

This was my card to show them, a nice easy plate to use.

I mounted the heart onto a  grid piece. I glittered the half moons with a glue pen and fine glitter.

This was done by a fairly new lady, she has only been a couple of times.

And this was made by a completely new to Groovi lady, this was her 1st ever card. Se een embossed the white spots too.

This is a little crochet dress I have finished for a charity.
Again, I used wool given to me by one of my craft club ladies.

We are away to Alicante tomorrow to see a Queen tribute band on Friday night, just hope the weather  gets better as it is raining again this morning.

Cards for Ukraine

 Good Morning  All

I dont like to talk about politics on here but the war in Ukraine is touching everyone I think and we all want to help in whatever way we can.

I watched a video on You Tube and Rachel showed some digis she had bought from a seller in the Ukraine so I popped over and had a look. I bought from two sellers  in the hope that it may help them abit getting some money ans Etsy have stopped charges for Ukranian sellers to help too.

These are afew of the sheets I bought.

From Kristie Art Design

I also bought some from Sharm Studio.

And these gorgeous Sunflowers are from Gecko Galz who donates all money from these sales to relief fund.

So, of course, I had to make them into cards to sell for the Ukraine.
Our Town Hall is collecting goods and money to send a wagon over on Friday 25th.  So, in anticipation of selling all the cards I have made, I trotted off to the supermarket and bought 86 euros worth of goods and got another 50 to spend this week as my Craft lady, Denise took some to sell at her bar .
I bought sanitary goods and antiseptic sprays etc etc.
The next 50 will be spent on baby stuff, nappies and food.

Here are some of the cards I made which I shall sell at slimming today.

At least I feel like I am doing something to help.

Happy Sunday Challenge

 Good Morning All

Here is the challenge I set my Craft Club on Friday, a  sketch.

For my card I used a Poppet image from Clarity stamp.

I love these images, so pretty and they come already coloured or  black for you to colour yourself too.

I mounted onto butterfly embossed lilac card  and added afew of my mini butterflies.

Sketch to follow

The gifts I gave out were Rocky Chocolate bars, in a box of course.

Last weeks challenge was a Bingo card.

I used Circle  Pink and Ribbon and again, I used a lovely Poppet on a Groovi Circle Grid.
Love it, so pretty.

Claire - Butterfly Sentiment Vellum

Dawn - Pink Blue Sentiment

Denise - Ribbon Butterlies Gems

Eve - Square Sentiment Ribbon

The name drawn was Denise so she received a little gift.
I tell you they receive a little gift but I never tell you what it is.
I fill a little box with gems, buttons, ribbon and charms, all stuff that can be used for card making.

Have a good Sunday.

Abit Mixed

 Good Morning All

As you know, I like to crochet while I am watching TV and here are a couple of items I have completed for the charity..

I like simple and this is reasonably easy

This little dress is even easier and so pretty. I have made 2 of these.
All made from wool donated by one of my Craft ladies friends, she sent 5 big bags  over for me so I shared with another friend who knits dog blankets, so all goes to good causes.

This is a notebook made for the  journal class. I like making these as they are so pretty and very useful too.  I intend to make similar ones for gifts at Christmas and for swaps.
The papers are from Tracie Fox over on Facebook

Here are some more bits I made with the papers too, ephemera to use in Journals.

Thanks for looking and I would love to know what you think, I love reading your comments.

Groovi & Christmas

 Good Morning All

It is my Groovi class this afternoon and we are doing Gridwork.

It takes abit of practice but well worth it.

This is a circle grid which are easier to do than the square ones.

I use my smaller pieces of parchment for bows, butterflies and flowers-

This is one of the square grids not yet made into a card, just to show the ladies.

And here it is completed into a Congratulations card.

Afew weeks ago, Eve lent me her tag plates so I cut afew and made some easy Christmas cards.
Both just matted onto embossed card.

I did promise myself I would try to make 10 Christmas cards per month and have not stuck to it, so I better get a move on.
Thanks for looking.
