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

Baby Blue

Good Morning All
Lovely and sunny here today, weather is getting much warmer now.
My card today is made with a stamp given to me by Linda (Animal Aid Charity), it was in box she gave me a while ago with loads of stuff in, paper, card, stickers and some rubber stamps.  I thought this one was rather sweet.
The checked paper was also in the box and I cut the shape with Marianne Creatables Nest Shape LR0236
The hearts are cut with Cheery Lynn DL128.
Sentiment oval using Spellbinders Beaded Ovals
Buttons with twine tied through from my Mums old button tin
Homemade crochet circle with twirly bits
Stick on pearls
Blue ribbon
