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 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

Stork for Baby

Good Morning All

Time for another Love to Create Challenge and this week we are sponsored by Meljens Designs and they will give the winner 4 great digital images, and the second sponsor is Papelitos and they will give 3 digis of your choice.
 The theme is SPOTS & DOTS and here is my card .
5 x 5 white card blank
Meljens digi Stork
Papermania spotty paper and spotty buttons from the Docrafts Goody Bag in May
Sissix Scalloped square dies
Tag 'Its a Boy' bought in USA years ago
Ribbon and other bits from stash

For this card I used a Papelito image.  I think this is a really fun image and I love her stripey socks and stacked shoes, that takes me back to my teenage years, wearing shoes like that!!!!All the embellishments on this  card I have either won or been given by some of my lovely buddies.
I look forward to seeing your creations.
