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

Crochet Star & Circle Shawls

 Good Morning All

Can you believe we will be in December tomorrow!!

Soon be Christmas!!!

As you know, I can't sit and do nothing while watching TV at night so here are two Crochet shawls in different designs.

I have done both designs before but this one has a raised row every three or four rows which I really like.

                                Here is this one before I added the border.

And here it is completed.

I will be keeping these two incase anyone wants them for a new grandchild.


Here is a pic of me enjoying my fave tipple of Bacardi and Diet Coke when we were out last week in Quesada.   I dont normally like seeing pics of myself but this one is OK.

I like it when I see pics of you, puts a face to the name.

Thanks for visiting.

More CAS

 Good Morning All

We are not at Craft Club today as one of my ladies is 80 next week, Pat, so we are going out for a meal to celebrate.

So here are a couple of  CAS cards I made for the charity boxes.

The first one is  JND die cuts and embossed lines on the card blank.

This is a Creative Expressions die cut and it makes a very quick effective card.

Thanks for visiting and see you Sunday.

Johns Big 70

 Good Morning All

Last week my John reached his big 70th Birthday and here is the card I made for him.

He is a big Liverpool fan, well most sports he likes, and we are going to see a Grand Prix next year too.  This is a big 8x88 card, as I didn't have to post it.  The brown texture paper behind  I was given a load of them  in different colours and thought they suited a Man card.

I did ask my Craft ladies if they would like to make him a card too as it  a big birthday and they did me proud.

Thanks to all.

Happy Sunday Challenge

 Good Morning All

Spots & Stripes is the theme of my Craft Club challenge this week and it will run for 2 weeks as we are not at Craft next Friday.

The toppers  are from  LOTV  and one of my ladies gave me a pack of papers, some striped and some spotty so I will let the ladies choose some to use.


Gifts I gave out were Choccy bars and of course,  I made boxes.
I ended up adding ribbon or bands to all of them as the magnets were near useless!!!

Last week challenge was a sketch

My card using another LOTV Topper.

Dawn made 2




The name drawn was Denise.

Thanks for joining me today.

 Good Morning All

I had to make some quick Christmas cards for the charity boxes so I went Clean & Simple.

I cut some tall triangles from different shades and textures of green and gold  card for these two.

This one I printed the sentiment straight onto the card base and added afew gems, I think there was a little smudge!!!

Then embossed some diagonal lines.

This one has a die cut from John Next Door, one of his older sets.

This one is mounted on to red Mirri card, same as the leaping deer and Johns Snowflake emboss folder.

I will show more next week!!
Here are afew pics of my views in the morning when I walk Rico.
Just as the sun is coming up, the mountains in the west look red.

Then they get lighter as the sun get up more.

This is my favourite time of day especially this week as the full moon has still been visible too.
