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

Good Evening All
My card for today is from a pack from PaperMania `Enchanted Fairies of Little Venice`.
I was lucky enough to be featured as Star Letter in Creativity Magazine for March and as such I received £50 of goodies.  They were sent to my sisters address in the UK and when Mum arrived last week she brought them with her.  Wow, it was like Christmas arriving early, all that stash to play with.  There were afew of these packs of diecut decoupage so I have been making quite afew cards for my charities and this is one of my favourites.
Once again it is an easel card
Papers are `Hot off the Press` Soft Nostalia
Punched flowers inked in shades of brown, with gems at the centre
