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.

Jools Holland

Had a fab evening at St. George's Hall watching Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra. We've been going every year for the past 6 or 7 and its always a brill evening with plenty of jazz, blues and boogie woogie. Ruby Turner was guesting and was amazing. Mark's threatening to become a groupie as he'd follow them everywhere and anywhere, lol.

Anyway got home and wanted to make a music inspired card and decided to have a go at the 'labels' technique courtesy of a workshop a couple of weeks ago.

I coloured the labels with distress inks in antique linen and tattered rose. The stamp is by Stamps Happen.

Hope you like it, x
