About Me

My photo
My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.

Folded Card

Can't believe its a week since I last posted. Goodness knows where it has gone. However in my defence I have been busy creating.
I made this card for a friend's birthday. She won't open it until tomorrow but I know she won't be surfing my blog before then, lol
Its my first attempt at one of these folded cards and I was pleased with my effort. It really makes for an effective card and not too difficult to do, once you've mastered the folds and cuts.


  1. This is beautiful. Love the colours and the owl image.

  2. Well I've opened it now and it's really georgeous! Thank you for making me such a beautiful card. xx
