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

Anniversary Hearts

 Good Morning All

A nice simple card today.

Heart embossed pearlised background and a sentiment die as the focal point.

Another one for the charity box.

I am still getting boxes of craft stuff together and selling it for the charities.
The stuff is coming from one of my Craft  ladies after she moved and cleared alot of her craft stuff out and Nancys' stuff, who sadly passed earlier this year.
All going to a good cause.

Happy Sunday Challenge

 Good Morning All

I left Eve in charge of craft club on Friday as I was in UK visiting my Mum.

A nice easy challenge this week


These are digis I bought in postcard size at the Craft chop and coloured with my Polychromos.

Quite happy with how they turned out.

The gifts I left were envelopes I had made and decorated with some flavoured Teabags in.

Last weeks challenge was a sketch.

2 Patterned Paper for MTTC

 Good Morning All

The challenge over at My Time To Craft is

Two or More Patterned Paper

I have made two cards for this one as I am using my scraps.

I do like using silhouette stamps on different backgrounds.

This one is simply strips of watercolour paints.

So I have tried to use the same colours in the scraps of paper on the background.

I do get a feeling of accomplishment when I use scraps and try to empty a wallet of them.
Do you use your scraps and if so how?
