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

Whats New for Allsorts

Good Morning All
Mervi is hosting the challenge at Allsorts this week and she would like to see 'New Stuff'.
Well I bet we all got new goodies for Christmas. I bought lots of new goodies when I went to see John Next Door and here are  couple of them.
I got some Texture Paste and a mask (after watching Julia Watts) and I love this technique and now want to buy more masks and paste (next visit !!!!!)
I also splashed out on some new dies and this is one of Sue Wilsons called Magical Butterflies.
It is a really good set as you get alot of  butterflies, inner and outers too, tiny and large.
This card just used three of them.
The sentiment is stamped on a 'pierced flag' die cut.

Sponsor is Digistamp Boutique
Brenda is giving 2 tickets for Hobbycraft show at Manchester in February.
