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

Penny Black at Allsorts and Allsorts

Good Morning All
Two posts in one today.
First is for Allsorts Design Team.
The theme is to do a take on a past challenge, that is one of the design teams creations.
This is my take on one of Tracys creations HERE.

Tattered Lace butterflies.
LOTV Nitwit Butterfly Kisses papers.
Nellie Snellen Decorative Circle die.

I hope I have done her card justice.

This is Tracys card which is so gorgeous, my fave colours and butterflies too.

Sponsor is Sissix
offering this fab prize.

It is my turn, as part of the DT for Allsorts to create for Penny Black and More.
The theme is Autumn and this is what I came up with.
I used this cute Penny Black stamp from a set called  'Stitches'  (Product Code 30-303) and she looks like she is laying down in the hay.
I used all Autumn colours, terracota and greens and the paper has children collecting blackberries.

Why not join us in either challenge this week.
