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

Black & white & Simple

Good Morning All
I hope you are all ready for the big one by now, I have not bought any extra food as we go for a walk on the beach with friends and their 3 dogs, then we find a bar that is open and serves food.  Last year it was great, weather was very warm and people were in the sea swimming, it was lovely and makes for a stress free Christmas.  But I do miss my family, but this year my younger son has Hollie who will take over his Christmases from now on, and my older son is going on a mini holiday, which I am glad of as it will take his mind away a little from his son who passed away.

Anyway, onto happier things like card making
I received this heart from a friend on Docrafts and decided to make it the focus of my card.  Glued it onto a black base card and added afew quilled flowers, s simple sentiment and a diamond swirl from Zva Creatives - simples.
I would like to wish all my followers, old and new, a Merry Christmas and a Happy and productive New Year.
