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

I shouldn,t really be crafting this morning as we are going to Spanish lesson this afternoon so I should be revising, but Heyho, some things take priority!!!!

Tilda with wings image coloured with Promarkers
Deep red card from stash
Spotty paper - freebie
Flourishes sent to me by my good friend Chris Lee on Docrafts forum
Quilled flowers again made from paper sent by Chris

Spotty ribbon - Joanna Sheen
The base paper is very faintly printed with butterflies in ale green (again sent to me by a lovely Docrafts member)
