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

Good Morning All
This is a scheduled post as I am in the UK and when this post goes live I will be in Lancaster watching my eldest Son doing a skyjump for charity.  He wants to raise money for Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool.  Their bereavement staff were so supportive to him when Lucas died, he wants to give something back to them and he has done and is doing quite afew sponsored things for this very worthy cause.

It is Allsorts Challenge day and the theme has been chosen by Catherine and it is 'Stitching' real or faux.

I chose an image from one of the sponsors ' Black Eyed Susan' and I loved colouring this with my Promarkers.  I did Faux stitching as my sewing machine wont work on card, (it is on it's way out I think).  Embossed Coredinations card and added afew of my lovely homemade tags and brown ribbon.  I really like this card, even though I do say so myself.  Do you ever feel that way?  Some creations you are not keen on and others you really like.

Our sponsor this week is the wonderful Ruth at Passion For Stamps.  I do love her digis and she has a wonderful blog too, why not visit her on the link above.
