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

Colour Challenge

Good Morning All
Moving Along With The Times challenge is chosen by Carole and she wants to see the colours in the picture below.

I made this one featuring S/B  Beaded Ovals die and a Marianne Craftables CR1253 for the corners.



When I was in the UK in December I only bought a couple of things and Gilding Wax was one of them, I only bought one tiny tub and my wonderful friend Val, here in Spain, bought me three for Christmas, Thank you Val, a wonderful gift.
I am still practising with it,  I rubbed some on the sentiment oval at the top, not got it quite right yet though.
I did have to root around to find the colours for this, ribbon and lace came to the rescue and found some stiff paper from a pad bought at Lidl.  Flowers, once again, have been in stash for years.
What do you think?



Pop over to the challenge blog for all the details and have fun.

Dies Total = 9
