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

Music Inspired

Good Morning All

Moving Along With The Times  Challenge time again and the theme is 'Music'.  When I saw this one I knew what I wanted to use.  When I was away I did some cutting out (decoupage) and this is one I did.  Some of these sheets were given to me by Linda from Animal Aid.  There are loads of different designs and there is also pricking marks on the back so it makes the pattern on the front.

I mounted it onto a green mirri card and then onto a  6 x 6 scalloped card blank.  Added afew gems and a piece of raffia tied into a bow.

Pop over to the challenge blog and have fun.
