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

Stars & Stripes

Good Morning All

A week has flown by and it,s time again for another new Challenge at Love to Create.  Wow last week we had loads of entries and some amazing ones too.  This week we are sponsored, once again, by Bugaboo Stamps and the winner can choose digis to the value of $21 - brilliant hey?

My card for the DT is a Bugaboo digi and, I have to admit, I had to look up what colours the Stars and Stripes had to be.

5 x5 card blank
Digi coloured with Promarkers
Everything used from my stash (as you know I am on a drive to use some of my older stuff)
Except I did buy the Sissix scalloped square dies last week when I went to craft shop with my mate John next door.!!!!!!  As you know they just jumped into my hand.
I have started to write my sentiments on computer.
I hope you like it.
