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

Back to School

Good Morning All
I bet you are all looking forward to the kids going back to school, and this is the theme of the new challenge this week at Love to Create.  We are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps who will give the winner 7 digis of their choice to the value of $21.

For my card, I chose -'Ava with Flowers'.  I thought this was a good one because when I was at junior school I was always taking my teacher a bunch of wild flowers that I had picked.  Her name was Miss Baxter, I can still picture her now, after all these years. !!!!!!
I used Papermania paper from May Docrafts  goodie bag.
Zva Creative pink pearl swirl (I won )
Punched flowers with gem centres
Ribbon from stash
Red gems from homemade jewellery stash
Sentiment printed on computer
Dies are Sissix scalloped squares and Nellie Snellen Frames
Image is coloured with Promarkers

Do hop over and have a go at this challenge.  I really enjoy looking at your creations.
