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

Fave Colour Combo for Creative Craft Cottage

Good Morning All
Creative Craft Cottage Challenge this time is to show your favourite colour combination.
Now this is quite hard as I have so many, pink and black, pink and lilac, brown and beige, brown and blue etc etc etc.

I coloured this sweet image from Lacy Sunshine, our sponsor, their digis are so cute.

I dont know why but I wanted to colour it in yellows and oranges, not usually my colours but heyho there we go.
I chose a card blank that I bought at the Ellesmere Port craft show when I visited with my sister last December.  I had to hand cut some matts for it.  Once again all bits from my stash, when I make flowers I tend to make quite afew of them and store them in mini drawers, so that is where the big flower came from.
Hop over to the challenge blog to see all the other wonderful DT creations.

Hi Wendy
Heaven's to Betsy you have a steady hand to hand cut those layers.
The colours fit perfectly for Autumn....maybe that's what you were subconsciously thinking, though I dare say its still nice and hot where you are.
Best wishes.
