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 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019. 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

Summer Fun for Allsorts

Good Morning All

I am hosting Allsorts Challenge this week and I have chosen a theme of
Summer Fun

I went with a pastel card and paper.
I found this lovely vintage image from Crafters Companion of two little girls catching butterflies and popping them in a jam jar.
Do you remember doing that when you were little, I do.
Mum used to pack us up a picnic of jam butties and a bottle of cordial and off we would go for the day, no worries about safety, just fun.

I printed the sentiment out.
Added a piece of a paper doily on one edge.
And some gems.

We have a great prize this week from Chocolate Baroque.
Mark Gould - Gypsy Rose individual unmounted rubber stamp - A6 ...
