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

Bits & Bobs

 Good Morning All

I am still trying to clear out my photo files so  this is afew more.

Firstly, at y Craft Group, I do give all the ladies a gift and I  very simply decorate the little paper bags, John gets his meds in from the Farmacia.

I use a printable and cut to size to fit both sides

                                                    And here are a couple of cards.
This one is a digital that a lovely Spanish lady was kind enough to send to me, layered onto embossed pink card and then black card, still trying to use my scraps too.

And this one is a lovely silhouette stamp in a painted oval .

Some more cards from my stock today.

These are all just over 5x5 size and are great for my boxes for charity raffle prizes.

I would be lost with out my LOTV Toppers for Mens cards. I bought alot of digitals from LOTV and store them on my Laptop to use whenever I want and precoloured too which is a bonus.

This one is using a Two Jays stamp that John promoted a long time ago.  Just stamped on an inky background.

This is  a random stamp, again, stamped on a watercolour painted background.

Paper is from LOTV pad.

They are both A6 size and ready for a box for a raffle prize for the charities.

Easy peasy.

I made loads of Christmas Cards for the charities and the shops. 

So here goes, take your pick!!!!

I thought I  had made enough for myself and the charity but then a lady asked for a load so I had to get cracking again.
Most are either A6 or 5x5.

I'm going in the PINK with todays cards.

I used the same backing paper on both cards with toppers from LOTV.

I think they look very pretty and will be good in the charity boxes.
