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

No Designer Paper

Good Morning All

Allsorts Challenge time again and the theme is 'No Designer Paper' chosen by Brenda.

I chose a gorgeously cute image from Nicecrane 'Vintage Kids, mounted on to blue card and then mirri card.  I embossed  a piece of white card with a 'Vine' folder then inked it.  I added all bits  from my stash and then embossed a silver card with Best Friend because I,m going to give this card to one of my oldest friends Trudy, as it is her Birthday in January, so I shall take it with me when I go back next week, she loves dogs so will suit her perfectly.
Ooh, this time next week will be 'cuddle' time for me.
Pop over to the challenge blog to see all the other DT creations, so gorgeous.
