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

To A Special Person at Christmas for MAWTT

Good Morning All
Moving Along With The Times Challenge  this time is
'To A Special Person At Christmas'
hosted by Carole.
I decided to make a Christmas card for  my OH

I made this after watching Phill Martin on Hochanda, but he made it look so easy lining his paper up with the aperture.
The centre is cut with Sue Wilson die - Hollywood from California Collection.
And the 'Just for You' is one of hers too.
The Ivy Corner is Cheery Lynn B315 and the Poinsettias cut from parchment paper with Leanne die.
Paper is LOTV and the top sentiment is from Docrafts.

This is showing the inside.

It is a big card for me, 8 x 8, but as I,m not posting it it didn't matter.
Pop over to the challenge blog to look at all the other DT work.

By the time this goes live I shall be getting ready to leave UK to return to Spain on Friday.
So sad to leave everyone.
I miss the grand children like crazy.

  6. Brilliant card Wendy and nice shades of red and green, great design too.
    If I gave my Hubby a Christmas card he'd moan and groan, his birthday is Christmas Day and he doesn't even want a Birthday card, thinks they are a waste of time and money, his middle name is Scrooge.
    Have a safe journey.
