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 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. 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

Forever Friends

Hi all
It is a lovely clear day here in Spain today, very warm again.  I must get out for a walk later.  This view is from a pathway at Cabo Roig, it,s a beautiful walk along the coastline, we often go there.

Trying to get one Christmas card per week made on the Snoflake challenge over on Docrafts.  I love teddies and especially Forever Friends, this one is from their Christmas decoupage kit and I love it, so I think there will be quite afew more in the coming weeks. 
This is another easel card (I love this style at the moment).  Decoupaged image mounted on silver mirri card, two stars coloured red with Promarkers, ribbon and sentiment added on top of, a sort of hat pin I made with cream and ruby coloured pearl beads and red wire from my jewellery making stash.  Forever Friends paper and red card punched border added inside and another sentiment.  Red and green gems added too. Hope you all like it.
I am going to enter this in
Forever Friends fortnightly challenge  -  More than one fold.

Weather here in Norfolk dull & wet ! What a contrast. Love the card, good idea with the beads ...I'm into ribbon at the moment.

My goodness, it must be really hard getting inspired to make Christmas cards when you have such good weather - well done!
