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

Die(d and gone to heaven)

Good Morning All
Do you like my title?  It is for my die cut card and because I am here, in the UK, having lots of cuddles with my gorgeous grand daughter.  We are both lying on my bed and she is fast asleep while I look after her and her Mum is having a lie in and Daddy has gone to work.
My card is one I made a little while ago.
And this is the inside.
Once again, I followed Christinas tutorial from Card Making Magic (link on `Pretty` card on 12th August)
Butterfly is Marianne Die
Punched flowers with glitter glue centres and tiny pearls
Large flower is Spellbinders Blossom
Joanna sheen ribbon doubled with silk ribbon tied in a bow
Flower paper from Creat & Craft
Card from my local `Papel` shop
Hope you like it and I will have to sign off as Hollie Anais is starting to wake.
