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

Good Morning All
Allsorts Challenge is Embossing this week chosen by Helene.  She would like to see Embossing on your creations.

I did  abit of parchment craft on this one, using an emboss and pricking stencil, mounted onto crimson and mirri card cut with Spellbinders Labels 4.  I also found the dotty embossed mirri card in my stash so used this too.  All mounted onto hammered cream card and a Leabilities Poisettia (as in my tutorial on page tab at top) and homemade pin and tag with ribbon.
