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

Summer Florals for MTTC

 Good Morning All

My Time To Craft Challenge starts this morning and the theme is

Summer Florals 

chosen by Alyson.

I used a digi backed onto bright yellow card and I embossed the top left corner.

I mounted this onto a leafy green paper, again, backed onto yellow card.

Added a yellow bow and a sentiment.

This was a flower in full bloom on a bar terrace across the road from us.  Isn't it gorgeous.  I used it on one of my Collage Journal pages too.

We have a worldwide DT so why not pop over and visit them.

Sentiment Toppers

 Good Morning All

I bought a couple of sets of Sentiment Toppers from my local shop when they were on offer, they  are made by Tonic.

I thought they would be great for quick cards and they were.  These are smallish cards, 5x5, so will be going in the boxes I make for Raffle prizes.

There were a mix of sentiments, Birthday, Thanks Get well etc.

Again, I used leftovers  - bits of embossed card and odd pieces.

Do you like them??

Happy Sunday Challenge

 Good Morning All

Back at Craft Group on Friday and we had abit of a party as one of the ladies is moving a bit further south.

So she brought some cake and fizz in.

We will miss Maggie, she is a character and loved by all.


I still set a challenge and this week was a sketch and here are two cards I made.  Sort of CAS but I like them.

I used some flower and leaf stickers from my Junk Journal stash.


The gifts I gave out were Gold and Silver Marker pens, which I had made pouches for.

 I didn't give out choccy as Maggie brought in Carrot cake yum yum.


Last times challenge was

Sentiment as Focal point.

 Good Morning All

On these cards I really am using scraps  - Small pieces of embossed card.

Using my little punched butterflies and ribbon from 

Crafty Ribbon .com

Stamped sentiments

These are all 5x5 cards so smallish but great for the boxes I make for raffle prizes for the charities.
Which one do you like best??

 Good Morning All

Here are three cards using some gorgeous Ribbon From Crafty Ribbons Crafty Ribbons 

I used to be on their DT so  I still have some pieces.

These are card bases I make a my Craft Group on Fridays, using offcuts of embossed card and ribbon to hide the join.

I didn't add a topper on this one as I didn't think it needed it with such lovely bold ribbon.

Do you like them??

You Tube

 Good Morning All

We didn't have a Craft Group on Friday as the shop was shut so my little challenge is carrying over for another week.

So instead I have some cards I made to show on my latest

You Tube video.

The video shows how I make the Sentiment Dangles and there are links there too for the Heart one on this first card .

I have lots of these Dangles now so you will be seeing them again!!!
What do you think??

Winter for MTTC

 Good Morning All

My Time To Craft This fortnight is


chosen by GranMargaret down in Australia,

I made this card first, then when I was looking in my Christmas drawer for some suitable papers, I found some toppers I inherited from somewhere and thought  the scenes were very Wintery.

So this is the first one with an LOTV topper, Crafty Ribbons sentiment ribbon and a peeloff.

I added a boot charm tied with twine.

This is the second card with a lovely Winter scene  -  snow covered roof tops.  I think the papers are from Lisa when she used to work for Creative Expressions.

Which do you like best??
