About Me

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

Use Your Dies

Good Morning All
Ladybug Crafts Challenge this month is 'Use Your Dies'.

I used Marianne Large Butterfly and Small Butterfly dies,  Sue Wilson California Collection for the sentiment and Bevelled Glass Striplet for the main part.
Homemade bead pins with a sticky gem flourish from Zva Creatives. I made the felt flower after watching a Sue Wilson You tube video.
I hope you like it and will pop over to the challenge blog and have a go yourselves.
