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

Guest DT for Creative Corners Challenge

Good Morning All
I am honoured to have been asked to be a guest  design team member for the whole month of May at Creative Corner Challenges.  The theme this week is Mothers Day or Flowers.

I made an aperture in a 5 x 7 card blank.   I then stuck two images back to back with a piece of nylon thread going through the middle and attached it to the base card at the top and the bottom of the aperture so that the image will swing around.  This gorgeous image is from Bugaboo who are the sponsors of this weeks challenge at Creative Corners.

Flowers are made with Cheery Lynn 'Roses Die'  B152 and Spellbinders 'Bitty Blossoms'.
Butterflies are Marianne Dies LR 01258.  Added glitter to the butterflies, peel-offs at corners and to frame the aperture and a freebie sentiment from Netty.http://nettyscards.blogspot.co.uk/
