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 Afternoon All

Hope all is well with you.
Today would have been my Grandsons 3rd birthday, so feeling a little low today.  But going to Spanish shortly, so that will take my mind off him.  I console myself by thinking he is in a better place now, possibly with my dad and his other great grand dad.

Todays card is a Bugaboo digi ' Soccer'.  I have kept it quite plain as it will be for a boy/man.
I just added 2 black buttons with twine
 Matted and layered onto papers and card from stash
Image coloured with Promarkers
