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

Flower Power for Craft Rocket

Good Morning All

My first post today is for Craft Rocket Challenge and the theme is Flower Power.

I decorated this plain white bag, and I cannot remember where it came from.
Nor can I remember where the pretty pastel paper came from.
Flowers are CE Perfect Peony
Leaves are CE Mosaic Leaf  die
One of my stick pins.

Ages ago I was given a full box of pealised cards and toppers, so I have been taking them to our craft meetings and making some very quick cards.
I decided to put 6 of them in the bag and give it as a raffle prize.

So excited, my best friend is coming over today for a visit for a night or two.  She is staying in Benidorm and they have hired a car and are driving down, cant wait, she has never been to my house here.
