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

Spring Flowers

Good Morning All

Thanks for all your kind messages yesterday, I felt a little sore but OK.

The theme for this weeks challenge at Allsorts is 'Spring Flowers' chosen by Susan.

I made this card for my sisters Birthday at the beginning of January.

I have made this style before for my friends Lin's birthday HERE and love it.  I had to  make a box to put it in though, as it doesn't fold flat because of the flowers.
I used X Cut Square Nesting Die to cut the apertures in the middle and Cheery Lynn Roses again.

Sponsor this week is Passion for Stamps

So pop over to the challenge blog and have a go.
Dies Total = 18
