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

Good Morning All
Having withdrawal symptoms from Hollie, such a fab week.  She is such a character, so much fun.  Counting the weeks now until 30th November when I get on the plane to UK to see all the family.
Allsorts challenge this week has been chosen by Susan and she wants 'Buttons'.

I stamped this lovely image with a Lakeland stamp I have had for years, I stuck tiny buttons where the blossoms are and more shaped buttons in the corners.
Papers are from my scrap box, all matted onto yellow card and a white card blank.

Pop over to the challenge blog to see all the DT's gorgeous creations.
