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

Things With Wings

Good Morning All
Saturday morning and feeling abit down, dont know why, just am.  Diet mojo has gone, I feel my cards aren`t right, generally feeling 'unloved', do you know what I mean?  Dont forget I have candy on offer too HERE, please join in.

Anyway------------- Good job I made this card last week when I was feeling good because I think this is a lovely card, and -----
Saturday means time for a new Challenge at Allsorts and a great theme this week 'Things With Wings'.  So we want to see butterflies, birds, bees, dragonflies, fairies, angels, etc etc etc.........................

Our sponsors this week are Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.

Stitchy Bear - $10 voucher.

I chose a beautiful image from Stitchy Bear called 'Swans'.  As swans are white I did not colour it and stayed with a Black & White theme.
 Side View------------

The only bit of colour is the sentiment which is a very pale pink 'Congratulations'.
