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

NO Flowers

Good Morning All
Helene has set this weeks Challenge at Allsorts and it is 'No Flowers', she does not want to see any flowers, not even on backing papers so this may be a challenge for some of you.  I decided to go along the safe route and do a 'man' card so here goes. 

I,m not sure where I got the image form, it may have Lilac Garden, which is no longer open as Audrey retired.  Matted and layered using browns and beiges, (the beige being OH beer cartons as are the mini sentiments) I attached the sentiment with string, which I thought was in keping with the old fashioned image, and attached a tiny crown charm to it.
