About Me

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

Ribbons & Bows for Allsorts

Good Morning All
Second post from me today and this is for Allsorts Challenge.
Mervi is hosting this one and she would like to see Ribbons and Bows.

For my Christmas cards this year I have not bought any new stuff, I am using things that have been in my Christmas box for a good few years and this gorgeous ribbon with the holly and berries on is one such thing, I dont even know where it came from but it is so lovely.  I didn't need to add much more to it, so I just cut a border using Sue Wilson Gemini Cygnus die, added two more types of ribbon for the bow and a circle sentiment from Netty HERE.
