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

Good Bye

Good Morning All
I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  Ours was mixed as we received the very sad news that one of our quiz team members, Pat, who we see on Sunday nights, passed away on Thursday, very suddenly.  We could not go to the quiz as it would have been so very strange sat there without Pat.
Anyway, onto more pleasurable things - crafting.  Also a little bit sad because this is my last challenge for Love to Create,  I have really enjoyed my time with them but I feel that I would like to move onto new pastures.  Love to Create was one of my very first DT positions.

The theme this week is Dies/Punches and the sponsor  is Dr. Digi House of Stamps.

I used my X Cut Large dies to make an easel card and used one of the sponsors images 'Genie'

Paper  was going cheap in a craft shop when I was in Kettering, I think it came from a magazine.

The 'Just for You' tag has been in my stash for ages, years in fact.

Then I just added a stamped sentiment, afew gems and a home-made bead pin.

Have fun with this challenge.
