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 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. 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

Vintage for Allsorts

Good Morning All
The winner of my prize from last weeks post is
Christine Harrop
I have heard from Christine, after she responded to my post last night, so her prize will be posted out on Monday.
Allsorts Challenge this week is 'Vintage'.  Now this is not something that comes easily to me, I love looking at others creations but I find it quite hard to do it.
If you have a look at Astrids Artistic Efforts Blog, she does Vintage beautifully and she is very generous with some freebies too.

So it is one of Astrids freebie sheets I have used for this card and I am very pleased with it too.
With her images I have  added satin ribbon with 2 of my bead pins, a lovely pink doily, inked on the edges and some pearls and gems flowers from my local China store.

We have  two sponsors this week
