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

Anything But A Card

Good Morning All

Well, wonderful news for John next Door as he announced on Tuesday, he is to appear on C&C, I knew this would happen for him, and it was the best move for him, going back to the UK, I miss him.
*******
Charisma Challenge time again and the theme is 'Anything But a Card'.





I decided to recycle a small Pringles tub.





 I used this cute image from the Sponsor of fishes kissing, coloured with Promarkers.   Decorated with some paper I was given.


 Stuck some strips of gems around it and used  a couple of my crochet flowers on the top.

I gave this to Hollie when she visited, so sad now that they have gone home.  Both Mums here now so still busy.

Sponsors are
Paper Shelter
All That Scraps
All Dressed Up Stamps

See the Challenge blog for all details.
