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
It is Moving Along With The Times Challenge time again and the theme this week, has been chosen by our boss lady, Hazel.

VINTAGE


I love looking at 'Vintage' cards but I do struggle.  Anyway, I was given a load of stash by John Next Door and this image was in a box, there were quite afew, cards penny farthings, clocks etc.
I distressed some Coredinations card for the first layer then tore some paper for the next one.  Added some homemade sentiment tags and a charm that has got abit tarnished so I thought that would look good.
Hope you join in with us this week
