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

Camping for MTTC

 Good morning All

My Time To Craft Challenge this time has been chosen by Becca and her theme is 


I have to ask my Crafty Friend Eve if she had any images I could use as I wanted a tent, not a caravan, and she came good for me.

I made two cards with the images she gave me.

One Circle and one Oval.

Matted onto 6x6 papers.

Aren't they pretty?

Cards & Travels

 Good Morning  All

All settled back at home now and Rico back home too.

I have 4 cards to show you toady using a paper pad from Hunkydory which I bought at my local Craft shop.

These sort of toppers are not usually my thing but they do make quick cards for the charity boxes so that's why I bought the pad.
Here are afew pics from our travels.
This is from our apartment window in Madrid, we do prefer self catering to a hotel.

Outside the Prado Museum

Onto Cordoba which was our favourite place.
In May they open their patio gardens to the public and they are just beautiful and must take so much work and watering too.  So many pots hung on the walls.

And there was a festival too where they dress in traditional Spanish costumes, so beautiful.

Thanks for visiting and I would highly recommend Cordoba in May if you get the chance.

A Little Groovi

 Good Morning All

A couple of cards today using scraps of parchment.

This one is a small square with a squiddly pattern embossed which I thought matched the backing paper quite well.

I also use offcuts to punch flowers and here are two examples.

This one is a large sentiment and a picot cut airplane.

I am doing bits like this while I am away, sitting in apartment resting!
My legs cant walk like they used to, so have to rest quite often!!

Glittered Groovi

 Good Morning All

I think by the time this post goes out we will be in Granada.

But here are afew pics of Cordoba.  In the region of San Bacilio, old part, so beautiful. 

There was a festival on where the ladies dressed in Flamenco and the men in suits, alot if horse drawn carriages.


I have a couple of easy Groovi cards today, both the same really, just different backing so it makes them look quite different.

I have yet to add a sentiment to this one. Its quite a quick card really, just the glittering took longer than the Groovi work.

And this one is on green parchment with a spotty backing paper.
They do look quite different though dont they??
