About Me

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

Any Sport

Good Morning All
It is my turn to choose the theme for Allsorts Challenge this week and I have decided on 'Any Sport', mostly because I wanted to see 'male' cards.  Not that women don't play sport, of course, I just thought it would be interesting to see what you all came up with.
 I made this with my eldest son in mind, well he will be getting it for his birthday  in June.  Both him and Rick used to ride field bikes when they were little.  This is a decoupaged image from Le Suh and I stamped all the words with my LOTV stamp, added black gems and black ribbon across the middle.  The paler card has a sky/cloud effect but it does not show very well on pic.

This is what it looked like before I decided to add the minature envelope with a tiny fiver in.  I just thought it needed abit more embellishment and I thought Lee would like the fun bit.

We have two sponsors this week ------Whimsy  Stamps
              The Craft Barn
I cant wait to see what you all create and as it is my challenge I will be visiting all of you but forgive me if I don't comment on all but I will do as many as I can.
