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 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019. 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

Penny Black at Allsorts

Good Morning All
It is my turn to be a GDT for Penny Black  at Allsorts and the theme is Christmas.
I coloured my cute hedgehog with Promarkers.  The paper is some freebie that I printed off, not sure where from, and the sentiment is a freebie from Netty on her blog.

I bought some Latex makeup sponges and used this to blend the edges of the image,  much better than my homemade blenders.
I,m still using all my scraps and bits for my Christmas cards, even short pieces of ribbon, as this is, not enough to make a bow but enough just to fold like this.

Have a great day.
