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

 Good Morning All

I have made afew Mens cards for the charity box.

I make the toppers when I am at my Craft group on Fridays.  I use alot of scraps ie, torn paper,  then mount them onto cards and add afew bits and bobs, in the week.

I was asked last week if I would like to supply a box for the Animal Rescue centre that I support, as they have a shop now.

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.

A recycled card

 Good Morning All

As you know, I do order some craft goodies from Clarity stamp  in UK.

They always include a card in the parcel so I do like to recycle them and this is my latest one.

I may send this to my Mum as she is very deaf now and so its very  near impossible to talk to her on the phone, so I like to write in a card and send it off to her.

A Couple of Girlie ones

 Good Morning All

As I used a LOTV Topper for my Challenge card on Sunday, I thought I would show a couple of ones suitable for teenage girls.

I think this is what alot of teenagers do - talk on their phones and shop!!!!

These are mostly made from bits I have in a box at the side of my desk, odd bits of card and paper, ribbon etc.

Happy Wednesday

Happy Sunday Challenge

 Good Morning All

My challenge for the group this week was 


I have some toppers from LOTV of Animals so I made quite afew. 

I think the backing card is from Clarity, just two offcuts from another card so I covered the join with gingham ribbon.

I dont make many kids cards so the day I made this I did make quite afew to go in the charity box.

The gifts I gave were these candles I bought on the auction. Of course, I made boxes for them.

Last weeks challenge was a sketch

Claire was on a roll and made 4

Christmas Notebooks

Good Morning All

I am trying to clear some prints I have so I am making little Notebooks to give out at Christmas.

Here are two lovely ones, they are A6 size.

To close I use narrow organza ribbon.

                                     For this one I ruffled some satin                                                   ribbon and stitched on my sewing machine

I am building a little stock of gifts to give out at Christmas now. along with the bookmark notelets I made in Wednesdays video.
