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

Acetate Birthday

Good Morning All

I forgot to let you know how my sons Skyjump went, just perfect.  We had to wait around the airfield all flippin' day and him and his friend were getting more agitated as time went on.  Anyway, finally at about 5pm up they went and down they came, all went to plan and he raised about 600 GBP and  I am so very proud of him.






Walking across the fields to the plane.







                                                *********************************************************************************
Anyway, onto the card I made trying something a bit different.  It is a Birthday card with a sheet of acetate folded over the top. I punched a hole in the top corner and tied a ribbon through it and added a lovely green bead.
