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 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. 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

Birthday Tilda

Good Afternoon All
Well we are back from our weekend away and we didn't get washed away in the rain.  We went on a coach trip that should have been a 3 to 4 hour trip and ended up 6 1/2 hours and we had horrible rain all day Saturday but Sunday was glorious again and today we are back to gorgeous Spanish weather again - lovely.  I've been up on the roof to empty all my plant pots of water, after the torrential rain  on Thursday and Friday.
Anyway, as we go away  for our annual holiday in a couple of weeks I will only be entering afew monthly challenges and I made this one yesterday to enter the Crafters Companion challenge for October (I was lucky enought to win the September - Whoopy).  They are celebrating their birthday soon so thay want a Birthday card but you have to use an item or items of theirs,
5 x 5 card blank
Tilda coloured with Promarkers and I have bought some Spectrum Noir pens after watching Christinas Tutorial at Card Making Magic.
I used my new Spellbinders which I bought when Cuddly Buddly had an offer on - Scalloped hexagons.
Flowers made from felt using Spellbinder blossoms and bitty blossoms
Blue speckled paper is Crafters Companion from a Christmas pack from 2010 that came with a magazine
Embossing on front corner, I used Crafters Companion Box board
Homemade bead chain
Ribbon from stash
Round sentiment - freebie
