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

Butterflies & Bugs for Allsorts

 Good Morning All

It is my turn to host Allsorts Challenge this week and I went with 

Butterflies & Bugs

I had this large layered butterfly on my desk so I thought I would make that the focal point.

Once again, I used an Oxide background which I had spritzed with water to make it abit blotchy.

I also had the Parchment circle on my desk too and thought that would match.

I stuck  the butterfly on and added cheesecloth under it.

Then stamped some tiny bugs, dragonflies and butterflies from a couple of Johns (JND) early stamp sets.

2 prizes on offer this week
2 prizes, a Woodware stamp and Tattered Lace die 

I have a reminder of the River of Creativity Challenge

Parent & Child
I have used another Humphrey image,  doily and gingham, very similar to my 1st card on 5th June for the theme.
