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

Vintage

Good Morning All

'Vintage' is the theme this week at Allsorts Challenge and it has been set by Tracy.

I have use a stamp from Flonzcraft, one of our sponsors.  If you are one of my followers, you will know that "vintage" does not come easily to me and I did ponder over this one for a while.

I decided on a 'Man' card, as I dont make as many as I should.  I used a rubber stamp from one of the sponsors - Flonz- and pricked the edges and distressed with ink.  I used pages from a book and tore the edges and inked again.  Added a homemade sentiment and buttons with twine and some string on the fold.
