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

Use Your Dies

Good Morning All

Allsorts Challenge this week is 'Use Your Dies' so I,m sure this will be a really busy one.

I have made a wall hanger using Spellbinders Hexagon dies and the label is an X Cut.

All mounted onto wide white satin ribbon with a thinner pink one, interspersed with Mei Flower ribbon bows.

I stamped a sentiment onto the  X cut label and tied twine through the holes.

I have had this blue hydrangea decoupage in stash for years and thought it would go well on this creation.

The cameo on the bottom is an item I got in some blog candy.

I hope you like it and will pop along to the challenge blog to have a go at this one..
