About Me

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

Good Morning All
I,ll do this post this morning before I have to go and revise my Spanish for our lesson after lunch.  Learning seems to get harder as you get older, or it seems that way to me.

I have followed a theme for afew challenges I want to enter with this one. One is white on White and another is a sketch so I will try to explain what I have done because the embossing does not show very well.
Base card is a 5 x 7 white blank and I embossed 3 rectangles with my Cuttlebug with different patterns (tiny flowers and dots).  Then I cut 2 edges with an EK Border punch.  Cut 2 flourishes  with CB.  Tilda is holding an umbrella to protect her from the spring / April showers.  Just to give it a little bling I added blue gems to some corners and a white sating ribbon bow at the top.

I am entering this into -

Simply Magnolia - Sketch
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Water Water
I Love Promarkers Challenge #112 - White on White
