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

Winter Wonderland

Good morning All
Monday morning means it is time for a new challenge at Love to Create and the theme this week is Winter Wonderland.  Our sponsors this week are Bugaboo

and QKR Stampede will give a winner 5 of their images.
I chose 'Winter Boy' from Bugaboo
I mounted the image on Spellbinders labels die, then mounted on white card with blue twine wrapped around it and dotted it with glitter glue to look like snow.  I used embellishments to match the colours in the image (which I coloured with Promarkers and Spectrum Noirs)  --- green spiders web and ribbon both won in blog candy, buttons from ebay, sentiments are freebies.
