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

Christmas for Allsorts

Good Morning All
Allsorts Challenge this week is Christmas and is hosted by Susan.
I chose this cute image from our Sponsor, Scrappers Delight.
Once I had coloured him with Promarkers and his scarf is shades of brown, I thought I would go with non-traditional colours for a Christmas card.
I  had a pad of papers that were free with a magazine I think.  So it is all shades of yellow and peach. The 'with love' is a homemade sentiment tag cut from one of OH beer cartons and this is the last of the  seam binding that John Next Door gave me when I was over there last year and I  love it. It was on an earlier post I got to thinking about when it was when he left to back to UK and it must have been 2014 as I went over in December to stay with Hollies Mum and Dad, and he was settled by then at Creative Expressions, as I went to a demo day  there, so I think it must have been that summer.
Anyway back to the challenge, I hope you will pop over to the challenge blog and see all the other DT creations, they are gorgeous.


Have a good weekend.
I would like to thank you all for the bloggy hugs and thoughts on my Remembrance day on Wednesday, it means a lot to me.
