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

Moody Blue

Good Morning All

Moving Along With The Times challenge this time is 'Moody Blue and Debs wants to see Blues, there is a photo on the blog for inspiration for the colours.
I,m feeling abit blue as my back has gone again and I,m in agony, this is the worst it has been as I now have abit of numbness down my leg, so it's obviously a trapped nerve somewhere.  The worst is the night time when I,m trying to sleep and just cannot get comfy.  And we have more visitors arriving tonight.
I will just have to carry on crafting, at least the pain doesn't seem as bad when my mind is occupied!!!!

I decided to use a pre-coloured image from Pink Gem Designs and kept it very  simple as it is a 'male' card.
Afew opaque gems and a homemade sentiment.  The darker blue is a negative die cut and the image is cut with a Spellbinders Scalloped Circle, as is the sentiment.  The trellis corners are a Cheery Lynn die.

Gorgeous design, Wendy, perfect for a little lad!
Hope your back is better soon. Having had a slipped disk I can totally sympathise. My Dr's advise was to walk, walk and walk some more. Easy for him to say but it did help. Joggng it out though :) Take care. xx

Hi Wendy,

So sorry to hear you are in pain, I know what that is like as I have permanent Sciatica, which is what it sounds like you have, if so nothing will ease it apart from physio, when mine is really bad the only thing I can do is lie down. I do hope you recover soon and good luck with your visitors.

Card is gorgeous, love all the different shades and such a great image.

Love & Hugs

Lovely card Wendy. So perfect for a little boy.
So sorry you´re feeling bad. Perhaps it´s sciatica? I had that a few years ago and it was very painful and the symptoms you describe are the same. I thing a trip to a Chiropractor would be the thing to do.
Hope you get sorted out.
Bye for now Val x
