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

Man or Boy

Good Afternoon all

Back to normal here after our little flood in the garage the other day.

So back to crafting --- Todays card, or, one of todays cards is a MAN or BOY one.
How times change, this image makes me think back to being in junior school, in the summer holidays we used to pack a picnic and  cycle off to the woods or the local park for the whole day.  We would play in the stream and make a swing in the trees, make tents with one of Mums old sheets.  What fun we used to have, unlike today when kids are not safe to do this sort of thing, what a great shame.
6 x 6 card blank
Robyns Fetish digi -bike-
Paper and card from stash
Sentiment was a freebie chalked on edges

Yep... I can relate to your teddy. I used to ride my bike like him and Weeeeeee down the hill. I would be horrified if my grandson did that now with all the traffic. Great card and of course brilliant image.
