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

Not Birthday

Good Morning All

The challenge at Allsorts today is 'Any Occasion other than Birthday' and is hosted by Tracy.

I chose to do a Sympathy card as my charities do require a fair amount of them unfortunately.

I matted a Sissix 'Iron Gate' die cut from Centura Pearl card  onto green patterned paper and black card.
I used the Leanne die again for the flower, and added Gilding wax.

Sponsor this week is Jiggery Makery
and  our lovely Tracy is giving a prize too,

so pop over to the challenge blog for details and have fun.

Dies Total = 52
