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

Gone Fishing

Good Morning All
I should be back from hols by the time this post goes out but I have scheduled it just in case.
This months challenge at Forever Friends is 'Anything Goes' so that's a nice easy one and we hope to see lots of entries, and remember, you dont have to have an animal image on your creation anymore, but to be considered for the favourite, you must use a Forever Friends image, and the sponsor for this is Sugar and Spice who will give the chosen winner some embossing powders.

Our sponsor for the challenge  is Bugaboo Stamps
And they will give the winner----
And here is my card using one of their digis - Sunbonnet Fish and this makes a great 'man' card
And inside
The backing card here is some I bought in New Zealand in 2007, it is of Paua shells, which are found there and I bought some lovely jewellery there too.  (I,ve just found out that Paua is a Maori name given to edible see snails)
I cut an aperture with Spellbinders Scalloped Hexagons in the front of a 5 x5 card blank and coloured the edges with blue Spectrum Noir.  Decorated the front with Papermania Corners and a star, buttons and a charm, homemade sentiment 'Son'.  Inside I mounted the image onto the hexagon shape in blue.  Image is coloured with both Promarkers and Spectrum Noir.
Please join in the fun on the challenge, I know the Design Team enjoy looking at all your creations.

This is really lovely. Great idea for a 'manly' card and the backing paper is very unusual.

Thanks for taking part in the Crafty emblies Challenge with us.

Thank you for entering our 4th challenge 'on or under the sea' over on the crafty-Emblies blog page.

What a great card! Love the flow between the outside and inside. The only thing I would say, it would have been nice to have a fish on there to fit in more with the theme.

Hope you will visit crafty-Emblies again in the future and join in more of our monthly challenges.

Hugs Lisa xxxxxx DT
