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

Good Morning All
My third week for Allsorts Challenge and the theme is 'Masculine' which is one that alot of us dont find too easy or, maybe, dont want to find too easy!!!   I much prefer doing pretty and cute but here goes.
I chose 'Ship 1' from Digi Darla who are one of the sponsors this week, the other one is
The Craft Barn.

I made a twisted easel on a 5 x5 base square card, mounted the image on scalloped circle die and I did not colour it as I wanted to keep it monochrome.  Added buttons in each corner, a silver charm with string through which I wanted to look like rope.  Stamped a sentiment onto a scalloped oval and added a peeloff and there you go.
Have fun.
