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

Purple Haze at MAWTT

Good Morning All
this fortnight is hosted by Jan S and she would like to see Purples on your creations.
I decided to make my sisters Birthday card.
I really will have to get some more Sue Wilson Dies!!!!, I always seem to use this 'Hollywood' from the California Collection.
I turned the centre horizontal so that I could stamp the sentiment on it.
All the bits on this are from my stash.
The borders are die cut using Spellbinders Edgeabilities.

Pop over to the challenge blog and take a peek at all the other wonderful DT creations.

A note to my friend Val (Spain) have a good trip and a great time in UK.
