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 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. 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

Womens Day for Allsorts

Good Morning All
Allsorts Challenge this week is hosted by Mervi and it is Womens Day.
I bought some sheets of sparkly foam ages ago and was playing around and cutting with different dies.  This X Cut Doily one worked out beautifully.
The background is Mica Powder mixed with water and sprayed onto  black card.
Image is from Nicecrane, a Victorian Mother and Daughter I think.

Sponsor is Digistamp Boutique

And Brenda is giving two tickets to Hobbycraft show at NEC in March

Hi Wendy, great card, and the foam has been cut out so well, never thought of doing that. Btw, the toys haven't arrived back yet, will contact my local p.o in the next couple of days if they don't show up. Janice xx
