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

December Birthday

Good Morning All
It is time for Moving Along With The Times Challenge again and the theme this week is 'December Birthday' chosen by Kelly.

I must admit, I cheated a little because I made this card for one of my crafting buddies here in Spain, Lin,  a member of our craft group and her Birthday is in November, infact it is the same date as Noahs, 26th, so not a December Birthday.
  I wanted to show it on here but obviously couldn't because Lin looks at my blog each day.




 I saw this design on John Next Doors blog HERE and we talked about it at our craft club and they asked me if I could design one similar.

So off I trotted and worked it out.  Infact I made two but I still cant show the other one for a while because it is for another Birthday so until the recipient has got it I can't show it.




I stamped all around the edges and then
I stamped two Sentiments for the centre pieces and then just went to town on the flowers.



Added my usual bead pin, ribbon and sentiment tags.

I love how it has turned out and I'm sure Lin will too.

Afraid I can't say much abut your card Wendy as for whatever reason Blogger is not showing me photos the last couple of days, not to mention the silly thing in the comment box on lots of blogs where the cursor just goes along but doesn't type. Sooooooo frustrating.
