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

Ring O' Roses for MAWTT

Good Morning All
I am hosting this time challenge at Moving Along With The Times
and I would like to see Circles of Flowers (Roses).
I made two cards for this one.

I used John Lockwood Camelia Ring stamp.
Heat embossed with CE Ancient Copper.
Sentiment from Johns Daisy Elements stamp.

I hate to say how long I have had this silver on gold embossed card.

Organza ribbon with one of my stick pins and a heart shaped gem.

All matted onto Pierced Circle and Square.

This is a second card I made

The flowers are made with Cheery Lynn Roses die in shades of white and blue with gem and pearl centres.
Seam binding bow with gold linky stuff.

Hop over to the challenge blog and have a go.
I am offering a surprise gift for a randomly chosen winner.
My sister asked about my card stand, it is HERE
