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

Poinsettias

Good Morning All

When I got my Christmas box out, ready to start my Christmas cards last month, I found these digis that I had already coloured.  I have tried to find out by looking in my files, whose they are but I can't, sorry.





As I have said previously, I have not bought any new stuff to  make Christmas cards with this year.

The circle sentiments are freebies from Netty HERE




When John next Door moved back to UK (Crikey was it last year or year before?) he gave me some paper pads that he didn't want.  He had tons and tons of papers and card!!!!  I have some more to show you another day, more Christmas ones.

Anyway, these papers are from one of the pads, it matched the Poinsettias perfectly.

All I had to do was add a bit of ribbon and embellishments and voila!!!

One lot of about 50 cards has gone to one charity this week and will get in touch with Linda to see when she wants hers for Animal Aid.
