About Me

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

Happy Birthday for Craft Rocket

Good Morning All
Craft Challenge time again and the theme is a nice easy one
Happy Birthday.

I made my younger sons Birthday card for this one using John Next Door Foil method for the background.
He pastes kitchen foil onto card then runs it through an embossing folder and voila!!!
I added a vellum topper matted onto S/B Ornate Square.

I think this will be a busy challenge so why not join in.
Monte Carlo and Monaco today, we may go onshore and take a mortgage out for a drink!!!!!
