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

All About The Boys

Good Morning All

Allsorts Challenge theme this week is 'All About The Boys' set by Tracy.

I wanted to do a different design of card and came up with this.  It looks like  a cross over at first.

I bought some magnetic fasteners from Ebay, so I made a strap with the mustard coloured card and wrapped this lovely  ribbon around it.

The papers and the tiny buttons are from PaperMania.

Sentiments are homemade, tied with blue and yellow narrow ribbon.

Then the inside stands like an easel card.

Happy Birthday is a Marianne die
(just bought, along with 5 others, but Sshhhhh !!!)

Lots of pictures so I hope you get the idea of the shape of this card

I chose to use this gorgeously cute image from Digi Darla.  I just think he is so sweet.
I have been practicing my colouring and this is done with Promarkers

Hi Wendy,

This is brilliant, love the design and papers. The image is so cute, great surprise with him holding a flower towards the recipient and you have coloured him in perfectly. This would have made an excellent Mother's Day card from a young Son too.

Love & Hugs
