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

Orange, Purple and Black for Allsorts

This weeks challenge at Allsorts is hosted by our team leader, Brenda, and she wants to see
Orange, Purple and Black, which I take as Halloween colours but I really dont do Halloween so I made a birthday card in the colours.  I,m quite pleased with how this turned out.

I pondered over what to do, I must admit.
I used a paper from Kate Knight paper pad as my starter point, then kept it very plain, just added 2 types of orange ribbon, a bead pin and a stamped sentiment on orange and black tag.
I spotted all the flowers with black and diamond gems.
All mounted onto orange and black card.

Hope you like it.

Sponsors this week are
