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

Autumn Colours

Good Morning All

I am going to  new craft class this morning that is starting in my local bar, just going for a nosey really!!

We went on the Tapas Wheel last night and doing it again this afternoon.  This is where all the local bars in the village put on a tapa and a drink (wine or beer) for 1.80euro, so we did few last night with friends and doing afew more this afternoon with our Spanish teacher and his wife.  All the tapas last night were so yummy and all washed down with vino blanco so this does not help the diet!!!!

Saturday morning means Allsorts Challenge time again and this week the theme is Autumn Colours chosen by Catherine.

I used some butterflies digis  from our sponsor 'Digi Stamp Boutique' coloured with Promarkers.
Our sponsor is  who will give 6 images to winner.         

Brown card and beige card (OH beer cartons)
Brown ivy flourish is Cheery Lynn B315
Flowers are Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms.
Terracotta card and border is Kanban

Tapas Wheel sounds like a posh term for bar crawl with snacks to me lol! Yes, I am very jealous. Enjoy!
