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

Good Morning All
Time for challenge # 30 at Love to Create Challenge and the theme is 'Make your own Flowers' and does that suit me or not, as you know, I just love making flowers so I have gone to town on this one. 
We are sponsored by 2 companies for this week - Crafty Sentiments and Pink Gem Designs

I  have used a Crafty Sentiments image called Suzette and I mistakenly printed her out on the small side but I thought I would not waste her and decided to make a window frame card (tutorial for this on post dated 19th July 2012).  Decorated it up with lots of different typs of flowers, sentiment circle is freebie from Jak Heaths  blog.  Silver Butterflies punched from waste of Dufex decoupage sheet and pink butterfly is a freebie from The Lilac Garden site, this is a wonderful site and Audrey is so talented and kind.

Have fun with this challenge as I know alot of you love to make your own flowers too.
