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

Thank you

Good Morning All 

I think this is the time to say

Thanks to you all for sticking with me and supporting my Blog.

Happy New Year to you all.

I show you 3 cards I have made to take on holiday with us, for the staff that serve us.

All quite different but using bits I have had for a while.
The 1st and 3rd one use a stamp from Phill Martin  which I dont use enough.

See you all in 2023.

Craft Club Challenge

 Hi All

My Craft Ladies decided they would still like to do a challenge card even though we are not meeting (We do all chat on a Whats App group)

So I set to today and made a bingo chart and a card for them.

I used Circles, Square and Oval.

I heat embossed the sentiment on the oval with CE Bronze powder.

And this is the chart to use, three in a row.

This will run until 6th Jan when my John will select a winner.

I must say a big 
to John Lockwood (JND)
on his Engagement to Sam.

Thank you Clarity

 Good Morning All

By the time this post goes out I should have had my 4th jab.  I was hoping I would get it before we go away in January.  John had his afew weeks ago and all was good for him.

Today's card is made with a topper I received in my parcel from Claritystamp.com

I matted it Kraft card then onto embossed Pearl card

Most of the cards I make go into boxes to sell in various places.  I collected some money from the Slim club and the hairdressers where I have boxes of cards and it amounted to 23 euro so that goes in the charity box.

 Good Morning all

Trying to clear my photo files for the New year!!

Here's a couple of Groovi  cards, the first one is using a cut off and some odd bits of embossed card

This one is a double butterfly, again made the butterfly from cut offs.  The larger brad at the top has a lovely butterfly on it too, gorgeous.

Sadly I wont be seeing my Groovi ladies until the end of January as it is now approaching Christmas and I am away for afew weeks in January.

No Challenge Sunday

 Good Morning All

I am travelling home today, so afew teary goodbyes.

So, of course, I wasn't at craft on Friday so no new challenge.

I am missing this fella too and John of course.

This is Rico sat under my desk, his fave place when I am crafting.

We let his hair grow in winter too so he is quite hairy at the moment.

He is at La Finca Castellana while I'm away so I'm sure he is having a great time with all the other dogs.

This is the rescue centre I raise money for.

I just thought I would show a couple of my doodles in my practice journal

This one I shared on Instagram and FB yesterday, just a fun doodle.

I asked Eve to run Craft Club for me and the gifts I left for her were 
these bars, abit like Milky Ways.
