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

Flowers and Tilda

Good Afternoon all.
Things are starting to dry out afer all the rain the other day, at least I dont have to water the plants for a while.  The outdoor furniture is still drying out though.

Now for todays card, it,s another Tilda and she is holding a  lovely flower.

Once again it,s an easel card and all the papers are out of my drawer of bits (I,m determined I,m not going to cut into new sheets). The pretty purple and white floral paper, I have had for years and I think this is the last bit of it.  Flowers are homemade and the leaves are die-cuts.  I,ve added gems and buttons, and beads on wire from jewellery stash ( I make afew of these at night while watching TV).  I love the hat-pins that are fashionable at the moment but I think these look nice also and I have all these in my jewellery making box.

I am entering this in -
