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 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019. 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

AG for Allsorts

 Good Morning All

A very happy new year to you all.

As today is Saturday, this means a new challenge at Allsorts 

The theme is

Anything Goes

Our sponsor is Chocolate Baroque

Chocolate Baroque is a small independent art and craft company, based in the historic market town of Barnard Castle in County Durham in the North-East of England and is owned and run by Lesley Wharton. 

We design our own range of natural rubber art stamps from Sue's hand drawn originals, complemented by typography from Lesley.  The rubber stamps are made in house, by David, to our very exacting quality 

I have had this Groovi frame made for quite a while and I saw this idea of using can tabs on Pinterest.
As we have alot of these  which I usually give to my crafty friend Jen, to make handbags.
I found 2 red ones in the bag, which I thought were nice.
I added cream seam binding to those two and organza ribbon to the other.
The darker pink mat is an piece from a card I received, thats why there is a flower on the bottom corner, but I thought it looked OK.

I shall be making more like this I think.
I hope you join us at Allsorts.

Prize on offer from Chocolate Baroque
Chocolate Baroque limited edition Fragrant Honeysuckle stamp
Note: Our sponsor Chocolate Baroque will be on Hochanda TV with a One Day Special at 6pm Monday 4th January

That is a really super frame, great colour and shape, love the lacy looking background and those little flowers with the ribbon look perfect.
