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 a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Wrap It Up

Good Morning All
Time for a new challenge at Love to Create  and as my post title says the theme is 'Wrap It Up'  (Use twine, string or fibres) so I have wrapped twine around the side steps of my card and the sacking is recycled from a bottle of Rioja wine!!!!!
I kept it fairly simple as I thought this digi from Eureka stamps (called 'Heart Dog') was so cute I wanted to keep it as the main focal point.  I just added afew bits of glitter on the image.  Stuck some gems and buttons with twine tied through them onto the sides.
Our sponsors this week are  ---
Eureka Stamps
The Stamping Chef

Have fun with this challenge.
