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

My Time To Craft 511 - Summer Camping

 Good Morning All

My Time To Craft Challenge time and the theme is

Summer Camping

I went with a lovely, cute baby plate from Clarity Groovi monthly subscription club.

A little touring caravan surrounded with bunting and flowers.

I used the Charlotte grid to do the corners.

The words at the bottom read

'Home is where you park it'

I hope you will pop over to the challenge  blog and take a peep at all other makes from the Dedign Team.

Pretty card

 Good Morning All

Here I have a pretty card to show you.

This came about because I had the ribbon bow on my desk, I think it had been sent in a swap.

The rest is from my scrap box.  I am very happy with it and I think I shall keep it to use myself.

More Groovi Poppets

 Good Morning All

Back to Groovi today and here are three cards  I completed using the Poppets collection, all pre-coloured.

I do love these.

Grid work on the first two which I love doing.

And this one has a scalloped edge and piercing on two corners.

 Good Morning All

I have three cards to show you today, all having a Sentiment Die cut as the main focus.

The first one is a die from Creative Expressions.

I am entering this into Allsorts 733 challenge 

This next one is a funny die as some of the letters are joined and others are single, which I didn't realise when I bought it.

And this last one is my fave die as it comes in two pieces, one is the background which I cut in a different colour.

All three are quick cards to make once the dies have been cut.

Happy Sunday Challenge

 Good Morning All

I was not able to go to Craft on Friday but Eve stood in for me.

The challenge I set was

Use Strips.

A great way to use some scraps too.

I did get carried away LOL

I am entering this into Allsorts 733 challenge 

I do think they look more effective set on black card.

Gifts  were a mixed bag of past weeks.

Last weeks challenge was
Man card.

My card

I was taken aback at the entries as I always thought Man cards were not as popular.............

My Time To Craft 510 - Travel

 Good Morning All

My Time To Craft Challenge is starting again today and their theme is


I reminisce  back to being a child, going out on my bike with a bag with meat paste butties and some jam ones too.  Fishing net and jam jar tied to my handle bars.  Disappearing all day, not a care in the world,  off down to the woods to play in the stream and make dens in the trees and bushes.  

No thoughts of not being safe, not like these days, sadly.

Very much like this little chap, although I didn't take the dog with me!!

I cut an Oval frame with CE Pierced Ovals die and raised it up with foam tabs.

Added some string to add some texture and interest.
