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

New Beginnings for Allsorts

Good Morning All
Allsorts Challenge this week is 
New Beginnings hosted by Tracy.
I decided a new term at school was a New Beginning so I made Hollie a card to start the new term.

I was given these letters ages ago and the cute paper is from my sister Gill, also a crafter, but she did not want  a load of papers from magazines, so I took them off her hands.!!!!
I coloured the edges of the letters to make them stand out abit more.
Added orange organza ribbon with a heart charm.

Sponsor is Digistamp Boutique

Hollie loved it, along with a box of crafting goodies I sent to her.

Not long until I see them all and Arabella Louise.
Noah looks so pleased with his new sister, he is so good with Aurora and I,m sure he will be with this one too, a great big brother.

Hi Wendy,
what a very wonderful card, and that paper and design are so lovely.
Super lettere also.
Oh doesn't he look so pleased with his new sister.
They are both lovely, and I'm sure he is going to be a heart breaker when he grows up with that gorgeous smile, and sparkling eyes.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
