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 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. 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

Add Some Sparkle

Good Morning All
Allsorts Challenge time and we have a lovely theme this week 'Add Some Sparkle' chosen by Tracy Mouse.  So the sky is the limit really with a theme like this as most folks like abit of  sparkle.

 I used a Digi Stamp Boutique image and printed but kept it black and white and added glue on the outlines and sprinkled with glitter.  Matted and layered onto black card then stuck DST to make a frame and added glitter to that too.  Added afew butterflies with dots of liquid pearl on the wings. Freebie sentiment mounted onto a Spellbinders scalloped hexagon to finish off.

Close up of glittered outline.











We have two sponsors this week ------
  PPR Crafts Yours and Mine Paper Crafts will give a winner $10 voucher.  Also there is a discount available, see the challenge blog for details.


                                                   And
                             Digi Stamp Boutique  will give a winner 6 of their digis.
