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

Pastel Colours

Good Morning All
The them at Love to Create Challenge this week is 'Pastel Colours' or 'Easter'.  I chose a simple image from one of our sponsors - QKR Stampede called 'Apple Blossom Label'.  I coloured with Promarkers.

I obviously kept it all pastel shades -  pinks and lilacs and a little green.  I embossed a piece of white card and inked it, then cut it diagonally.  I put a length of lace and ribbon on the edge.  A couple of gems and a corner diecut.



Our sponsors this week are ---

Wings & Willows http://www.etsy.com/shop/WingsandWillows Prize $15 GC

QKR Stampede -http://qkrstampede.blogspot.com/ Prize 5 images.

Enjoy
