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

Hi all
Beautiful clear blue skies here  today.  My son was telling me that it is very cold in UK.

We were hospital visiting yesterday.  A great friend (and neighbour) of ours had a disagreement with his frying pan full of oil and he was admitted to Alicante hospital last Sunday after spending the night in Torrevieja hospital with burns to his face, chest and hands.  He is due to have and op today on his right hand, so prayers for him please.

I am still trying to get to grips with entering challenges, so I will try another one today.
This is a purple card base folded so that there is a lip inwards on the right hand side,
and a white card embossed on Cuttlebug.  Gorgeous flowery ribbon across botton and the top.  Pansy diamond shaped decoupage (I love pansies and I love cutting decoupage and I love purple) mounted onto lilac card.  Gems stuck on down the side and in the corners.
 and an organza ribbon bow in the corner.

I,m going to enter this in
Papertake weekly challenge - Buttons, bows, bling & blooms
