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

Lady Anne Challenge DT

Good Morning All
You may have seen my good news on yesterdays post about  being asked to join Lady Annes new challenge DT.  This is a monthly challenge and I am really looking forward to the new challenges with my new team mates.

Our first challenge is a sketch and here is my card  -----------
I followed the sketch which was nice and easy and the images from Daisy Doodles were fab to work with, I chose a sentiment as-well, me being greedy!!
I coloured the image with Promarkers.  Glued narrow yellow satin ribbon on strips of green card for the verticals and used wider green satin ribbon for the horizontals.  The two flowers were cut using Marianne dies and I used hand made paper and stuck a gem in the centre.

As I mentioned, the sponsor this month is -----

Daisy Doodle Digis
