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

Sympathy card

Hi all
I,ve made this card for a challenge over on Papertake Weekly

This is made from an A6 card blank, the top folded to make a side easel.  All mono tones - printed paper for inside leaf, a decoupage flower mounted on black card and a piece of white doily added at the side.

I give alot of Sympathy / Thinking of  You cards to my charities here and the feed back from Linda (Animal Aid) is very positive.  She tells me that she always gets asked for more because they are not too OTT (over the top).
I really like this one because it`s abit different.

I am going to enter this in -

Papertake Weekly Challenge - Black & White & Red all over
