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

Happy Sunday Challenge

 Good Morning All

Well, I came home from hols with dreaded lurgy.  Thought it was a cold, which always affects my sinuses, but by yesterday morning I was feeling dreadful.  So I went to Docs and he prescibed antibiotics  as I have chest and throat infection.

 I,m updating this post at about 5am, had a reasonable night but still feel as though  my head and nose are going to explode!!  But at least I can swallow and breathe  a little easier than yesterday.

I did go to craft on Friday as I did only think it was a cold and I had done a Covid test which was negative. 


This is the challenge card for this week, a sketch, a nice easy one.

I am entering this card into Allsorts Challenge 752  -  Embossing

Here are the gifts I gave out.....

I closed the box with a tiny bulldog clip with a dangle attached.

Onto last times challenge which was a MAN card.

Die Cuts

 Good Morning All

Well we are home and guess what  -  I'm full of cold.  It started the last few days we were away and sadly, when I get a cold it affects my sinuses, but heyho, life goes on.


My cards today are using some die cuts that have been cut for ages.

Whenever I am using the Gemini, I always try to fill the plate if I can with leaves or hearts etc.

So a varied theme but at least I have used some older stash as I'm sure we all should do!!!!

Nearly Home

 Good Morning All

Last day today of our trip, back home tomorrow.

I have two little parchment cards to show today.

These are just using the smaller pieces left over, one  with a heart and one  with flowers but still very effective and pretty.

These are the size I fill the boxes for the charity raffle prizes.
 5.5 x 5.5"
When I get home I will have to bash on with Christmas cards.
I thought I had enough for my own use and the outlets that sell them but no, need lots more.
