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

So Sweet

Good Morning All
 I went to back Specialist on Tuesday and he is sending me for an MRI scan, he said i have 'old' bones and it is the bottom two vertebrae that are causing me problems, he does not think it is a trapped nerve though.  They, the hospital, will ring with an appointment. Iam feeling better but it is still niggling, so going to go through with all this as I do suffer with back ache on and off.
Moving Along With The Times challenge time and the theme has been chosen by Sarah - So Sweet - and by this she means either food or a sweet image.

Warning - Large photo post coming up!!!!!!!

I used a  6 x 6  and a 5 x 5 scalloped card blank, scored the smaller one at half way point on each side.

The top picture is the outside back view when it is stood up, and these two are the front and the back if you know what I mean.

Decorated with same paper and card as the inside.
Cheery Lynne Chrysanthemum die, crochet flower (for sale in my etsy shop in sidebar)

This is the inside when it is laid flat.

LOTV toppers of mice eating chocs and drinking Champers.

Most of the die cuts are Memory Box
Homemade bead pin (for sale in side bar)
Doily inked on edges
Cheery Lynne die cut roses
Homemade crochet butterfly
Joanna Sheen ribbon

These last couple of pictures show how much the light alters the colour of the card.

It is a very bright green card with pink checked paper 'Spring Chic' Me to You.

Pop over to the Challenge blog and have a go.
There is a prize on offer this week too.

I sent this to my MIL for Mothers Day and this is what she posted on FB
 Have just received the most amazing card for Mothering Sunday, not just a card, an impressive work of art that must have taken hours, so much detail, too attractive to end in a drawer....... so very appreciated. Thank you Wendy and John.

WOW Wendy love this design, if you don't mind I may have to steal this idea. So different and I have a card to make for a little girl and I feel she would love this style. Just watched John's video and Magic Hands aka Wendy did a sterling job.

Hope your MRI Scan goes ok.. it's the bottom discs on my spine that give me the most trouble and a facet joint... they are right near the nerve! very painful.
Have a lovely evening!
