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

Happy Birthday Allsorts Challenge Blog Hop

Good Morning All

Today is the Allsorts 4th birthday and what a coincidence, it is mine on Monday too, so double celebration, and for this reason, we are having a      BLOGHOP.     And my SON and DIL and HOLLIE are arriving on Thursday so it is a triple celebration for me.  Woo woo.

Please start on the Allsorts Challenge BLOG and hop over to each blog listed and pick up a letter from each one.  Once you have all the letters sort them out into a 'word' then submit  it on the challenge blog and it will go into a draw.  There are two prizes, one from Pretty Little Ribbons and one from Stix 2.

Each of the DT members are giving an individual prize of their own too, so when you leave a comment on each of their blogs you will go into a drawer (not literally LOL) for their prize too.  So there are loads of opportunities to win a prize, so get going and HOP.

Here is my prize, a pack of 50 sheets of gorgeous hand made papers, a pack of patterned paper, PLUS, as it is my birthday too, I will put in afew surprise gifts too.


I will draw a name for a winner  from the comments left on this post next Friday.  In fact, I will get Hollie to pull a number out, as she arrives on Thursday, woo woo.

You should have hopped here from Jo's blog.

My letter is 'G'

Now you need to hop over to visit Helene

For the challenge this week the theme is, believe it or not,  Happy Birthday.  We expect a very very busy week as it is a nice easy theme and there are loads of sponsors for this one so hop over the the challenge blog to see all the goodies on offer

We have loads and loads of great sponsors for this birthday challenge, too many to list here so go to the challenge blog for details of all the great prizes.

 I have tried to make a special card for this challenge and added lots of blingy gems.
There are roses on one side of the centre piece and ruby ribbon on the other.
