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

Last Two Hearts

 Good Morning All

Here are the last of the Groovi hearts, I promise, well maybe not!!

These have been very quick and easy cards and great for filling the charity box

Also, at my craft club last week, one of the ladies had made some pickled red cabbage and beetroot and she asked if she could raffle a couple of jars to raise some money for my charity box.  So, of course I said yes and Eves hubby had made some cake so some donated for a piece of that too.
So  12.55 was added to the box so that was great, I thank them all.

Two more quick cards using a Groovi Heart.

I can sit at night doing these hearts and they are great for any card, Wedding, Engagement, Anniversary or even Birthday or Baby, like the one below.

This paper is from an LOTV pad and the embossed card is Centur Pearl and the EF from Creative Expressions.

Enjoy your day and see you Friday.

The Groovi Club 1plate

Good Morning All 

Some of you may know that I subscribe to the Clarity Groovi club and we are sent a baby plate each month.

This month it was an Easter plate and I used the cross and the corners to make a simple Sympathy card.

I did the borders using  the Hampton Court grid.

Very easy but effective I think.

One of my Craft Club ladies is taking a box of cards to sell and sadly as we get older we need this type of card.  This is great as it all adds to the charity pot and allows me to make more cards, win win.

Cards for Ukraine

 Good Morning All

Here are some more cards I made to raise funds for goods to go to help the people in The Ukraine.

The images are purchased from a  lady, Kristie Art, in Ukraine too as it will help her hopefully.

I must admit, I have since been on and bought some more from her, so watch this space.

These are quick cards to make and very similar to the ones I have shown previously.
The latest images I bought are more sport themed but vintage, so look forward to using those.
Thanks for the visit.
PS.  I have since bought from another seller from Ukraine too here are the links if you would like to support them too.

 Good Morning All

I dont have a challenge this week as the Craft Shop was closed on Friday as it was a holiday day here in Spain too.  So last weeks challenge runs for 2 weeks.

The paper is from an LOTV pad and afew gems left over from  a Crystal art kit.

That's it for today, short and sweet!!
Let me know what you are  upto this Easter weekend.

Groovi Circle Grids

 Good Morning All

As you know I really enjoy grid work with my Groovi and here are some cards I have made for my own use.

The centre piece is a Pergamano Poppet image already coloured.

On these next ones, the centre piece is a vellum floral  image, one of my Groovi ladies gave me afew sheets of these so I backed some onto white paper to make them stand out more.

I have reached 1000 subscribers  on my You Tube channel so I thank everyone who has subbed, it makes it all worthwhile.

I had a sketch for the Craft Club on Friday an here is my card using some more delightful ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.

This sentiment square I have had for years, it is red printed on vellum.

The ribbon is called Animal Cuddles and is so cute.

My Mothers Day card.

 Good Morning All

I thought I had posted this, my Mums Mothers Day card.

I used two Groovi grids for this and one of Clarity's Poppet images.

I had a Junk Journal class yesterday and this is what we made.
A little A6 size folder containing a notebook.
It has flips and pockets, great fun to make and the ladies enjoyed it.

Thanks for looking.
