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

Hope & Chances

Good Morning All

I wanted to show you these.

Christine from Hope &  Chances Blog  raises money for a couple of charities and I bought this kit from her HERE and  this is it assembled.

She supplies all the pieces to make a box, 2 flowers and the card, the tiny peg, pearls and tag.
I added the ribbon and inked the edges of the box and the card.

I made one flowers as her instructions and I made the other one by spraying and scrunching.  I inked them both.   Hard to say which one I like best but I do love them both.

Ronald McDonald house is a charity close to my heart as  we gave money to them when Lucas died in 2010 as they have a centre at Alderhey Childrens Hospital.  And any cancer charity too as I lost my fiance to cancer in 2006 and my Dad in 2000.
                                                                                                                                                                   Wendy L

Wendy, sorry to hear about your losses to cancer. I read Christine's blog every day, and she and her family have had a trying time this past year.

I loved the kit when she first introduced it, yours look exactly like hers, so well done!
