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

Sympathy for MTTC

 Good Morning All

My Time To Craft Challenge again and this time the theme is


I found  a random piece of card with these birds like swallows and matted it onto lilac card. 

I used a CE die for the sentiment and punched some butterflies from the leftover pieces of card.

Groovi Poppets

 Good Morning All

Afew more from the files today using the Poppets collection from Clarity.

I do love these images but its a pity Clarity only sell them as a pack with outline images too and I prefer just to have the pre coloured ones like these.

I think the background papers on the first two are from Clarity too.

I am entering this card into Ellies Wednesday Challenge AG

So my photo file is very close to empty, just saving a couple for the New Year.

See you then

Around The World for MTTC

 Good Morning All

My Time To Craft Challenge this time is Holiday Around The World.

I made myself a Travel Journal to record our cruise around the Mediterranean in Oct this year.

I used pieces from a World Atlas that referred to some of the places we docked  -  France.  Italy and or course. Spain although we called at Portugal too.

This is inside the front cover with a lacey envelope to keep tickets etc.

Near the middle  I added a brown paper bag and paperclip to store  more bits in.

I added some pockets and tuck spots or course.

And this is inside the back cover.   I did treat myself to a HP Sprocket mini printer so will be printing photos taken during the cruise to add to the journal too.

I think this is a great way of recording memories of holidays or special events.

 Good Morning All

A couple of Pink cards today  and using Scraps too.

This one I used a doodle on a tag with abit of watercolour paint.

This one has 2 butterflies I punched out with an EK punch and added pearls for the body.

I made them into Sympathy cards as I needed some for the charity boxes.  Sadly when you get to our age, we do need sympathy cards and most of the Expat community here in Spain are a wee bit on the older side!!!

Challenge  entered Allhttps://allsortschallenge.blogspot.com/sorts B  -  

I made afew butterflies with 2 different size punches, handy to keep in stash.

Great way of using scraps of paper too.

I also have a giveaway on my You Tube channel. You can either comment on here,  YT video  or my FB page.
If you watch the video  more is explained.  For card makers or Junk  Journalers.
It will run for afew weeks.

Happy Sunday Challenge

 Good Morning all

Sunday Challenge time again and the theme I chose is


These cards are all made from a decoupage set I was gifted and all going in the charity boxes.

I used to love going to watch bike racing when I was in my teens and Speedway too.

Last weeks challenge was a sketch and only two entries.
 John chose Dawns card as the winner so I gave her a little prize while we were at our meal out on Friday.
