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

Tuesday Morning Sketch

Good Morning All

I made this card specifically for the Tuesday Sketch Challenge.
I used Phill Martin paper pad, both sides.
My own stick pins and butterflies
Cheery Lynn Chrysanthemum. 
Distressed the edges with Tim Holtz
CE Pierced Rectangles and pierced Flags dies.
Crafty Ribbons Seam Binding

Only a short craft club today as we are having lunch for my birthday  which is on Sunday.
Cards have been arriving all week in the post and John has put them all away until the day.
Hopefully I might get brekky in bed  but doubtful as Liverpool are playing Champions league final on Saturday night so he will have either drowned his sorrows or celebrated the win.!!!!

I'm so sorry about the loss of your grandson. My first grandson was still born and I know what you mean about thinking of them every day. I can't imagine losing at that age. But you've been blessed with more as I have also. I'm sure you enjoy them to the ninth degree!! Your card is beautiful and surely will brighten someones day! Thanks so much for creating with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week!
