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

Good morning All
4.21 here in the UK and I cant sleep, so doing a bit of blog hopping and thought I may as well do a post and enter afew challenges.
I have used my fave Cheery Lynn 'roses' die here and 'corners'.  I,m still having fun using these rose dies. The butterfly is a Marianne with liquid pearls on the wings.  I kept this card quite CAS, just added a doily and a string of pearls and put the sentiment on the smallest of a Spellbinders Labels diecut.
