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

Valentines Day

Good Morning All
My eldest son has gone home and I loved having him here, he seems alot happier now with his new partner and he is now able to talk about Lucas and we looked at pics and talked about Hollie (his niece) which is all good.

Saturday morning means it is Allsorts Challenge time and the theme is Valentines so
love is in the air!!!
Here is another Valentines card - I love doing these pretty, lovey dovey cards.
This is my creation for this week and it is right up my street.  Pretty and lovey and flowery.  It is a single card so  I had to make a stand for it.

Showing the stand I have made from thick cardboard

I have made a box for it too so that the flowers don't get squashed and I think it makes it look abit more classy!!!!

Our sponsors this week are Whimsy stamps - $10 voucher
Stamp Addicts will give a 10GBP
