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

Bits & Bobs

Good Morning All

I made this the last week, it came about because the sentiment/verse was originally an insert for a card and the edges had got all tatty as it had been in my stash for years.  So, as I dont like to waste anything, I thought I would make it the mainstay of a card.

Paper from Create & Craft years ago.
Shiny butterflies from Mei Flower.
Small green butterflies are pop outs from a Spellbinder 'Butterfly Circle die'
Flowers are Spellbinders 'Bitty Blossom' with pearls in the centres and inked on edges.
The leaves are from a batch I bought on Ebay - a mixed bag of die cuts.
