About Me

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

Stencil or Mask It

Good Morning All
Allsorts Challenge this week has been set by Helene and she would like to see you use a Stencil or a Mask.

I have used a lovely image from Passion for Stamps coloured with Promarkers.

A5 size card base, matted and layered with green card and paper from stash.
I used this brass stencil and stippled the flowers through it with green ink pad, then pricked all the holes.
I dont think it looks too bad, what do you think?
