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
Just a quick message before I get onto today's challenge.  If any of you know Val from Spain, she does comment on some of your blogs, she has had an operation on her eye to repair a hole in it (called a molecular something (I cant remember full name)) and she is partially blind in her other eye anyway, so she cannot visit any of us until further notice.  She had the op on Friday morning and they also found a tear in her retina too so they had to repair that also.  Now she has to lie face down for afew weeks which is not easy.
The challenge theme this fortnight at Creative Craft Cottage is 'Flowers' and I used this lovely digi from our sponsor.

I used a lovely Sheena Douglas embossing folder that I got free with my Cut N Boss from Create & Craft that my OH has bought me for my Birthday  afew weeks ago, the deal was so good and they posted to Spain for 9.99 too.  I was abit dubious about ordering after the trouble I had last year with them, but it was all good and it was delivered within 10 days.
I coloured the digi with Promarkers and decorated with flowers, pearls, bead pin, ribbon and the leaf die is one borrowed from Val.

I decorated the inside too.

We have a couple of sponsors this week.

Really pretty card Wendy, I like the image and your great design.
My friend had that eye operation. She said the worst part was lying face down for the long periods of time.
Wishing Val all the very best.
Hugs for both of you

Hi Wendy
Terrific card and cute image.
Poor Val. And there was me feeling sorry for myself with the CPox. Give her my love if you're seeing/speaking to her as I guess there is no point in my emailing her.
