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

Birds Butterflies Animals

Good Morning All

Forever Friends Monthly challenge is sponsored by Joanna Sheen and the prize is some of her goodies.

1 tin of water colour crayons
1 stamp set - vintage babies
1 stamp set
1 stamp set
1 stamp set

And the Forever Friends Fave is sponsored by Saturated Canary
who will give the chosen winner 2 digis.

The theme is Animals and /or Birds and/or Butterflies, so that covers a multitude of options.

I have made a card for the birth of twins, it's a double easel with a pink Forever Friends Bear on one side and a blue one on the other and each one has a little yellow ducky.
The two circular sentiments are FF products aswell.  The base paper has 'Congratulations' on it and I stamped 'Best Wishes ' onto beige card then cut a pink and a blue scalloped circle.  Coloured peeloff corners and a gorgeous teddy charm  from Mei Flower tied with white organza ribbon on each corner. Finished off with some lovely pastel coloured lace I have had for years.
From Saturated Canary I chose this gorgeously cute image 'Butterfly Baby'
I didn,t think she needed much embellishments so I just added a ribbon (Joanna Sheen) and some Bitty Blossoms flowers and the little tiny pink ones on the scalloped circle are from Mei Flower
Hop over to the challenge blog and play along with us this month for a chance to win a great prize.
