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 a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Boys Toys

Good Morning All

Just a short time left to enter Love to Create Challenge - Use something recycled sponsored by Sassy Studios - fun digis.  See earlier post for my DT design.

A quick post this morning as I am having to go to the market to change something I bought last week (It doesn,t fit).  I want to get back and get working as I have two commission cards to make.

It is another Wellington image from Docrafts, and he is playing with a toy aeroplane
6 x 6 cream card blank
Rust coloured paper given to me by my friend when I was back in UK
Silver mirri card
Tag cut with John' s borrowed Spellbinders Antiques Frames and Accents die (Next door)
Charm from bracelet and dismantled.

I have been making quite afew Man/Boy cards but still feel that I cant bling them up as much as I would lilke to.  I will be blog hopping later on so I hope to get afew ideas from all the Fathers Day cards on show.  I lost my Dad over ten years ago and lost Lucas, my grand son, 2 years ago, so I dont make Fathers Day cards anymore, just general ones that the charities could sell for any occasion for a  man.  Chin up Wendy, dont get morbid.

Challenges ------
Card Crafters Circle # 27 - Feeling Sentimental
Fussy and Fancy Friday # 65 - Boy Attitude
