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

Good Bye John

Good Morning All
By the time you read this John Next Door will be well on his way, driving through Spain towards France, on his way to UK.  I will miss him so much but he has done it for good reasons and I,m sure doors will open for him in the crafting world.

This is the card I made for him.

The front is acetate and I stamped in the corner and heat embossed with gold.  Inside I put 'Bitty Blossoms' flowers made from book pages.
Heat embossed the sentiment and added Zva Creative swirl bling which I was lucky to win last month on their blog hop.

I,m not sure where the butterflies are from, they were with some blog candy.

I added one of my bead pins to the ribbon and gems to the butterflies.

This pic is without the acetate, as it always reflects when photographing.

Good Bye John, see you in December.

Awe, beautiful card for John, I am sure it's on it's way to the UK with your good wishes. It's always sad to have to say good bye to a good friend, I left a lot in the UK when I moved here to Ireland, but I had very little choice but to come here.

Ita, how are you today? Hope you are on the mend.

Hi Wendy. Gorgeous card. John will have loved it. Take care.

Hi Wendy, this is a fabulous card and I bet John loved it as well as appreciated it.

Never understood the reason why he decided to move back to the UK when, if I am correct, his Mom lives in Spain? I wish him well though whatever the reason I bet you will miss him greatly.

Love & Hugs
