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.

ATCs with Stamps

Well I have been a busy little bee today. Beats cleaning.....
This is a sample from the batch of ATCs I've done for our January Challenge over on KC. The challenge was to use any rubber stamp but to embellish it with a postage stamp.
I've used Journal Entry by Hampton Arts.
[Dot, if you're reading this, they're going in the post tomorrow.]


  1. They're great, Alison - nicely done :)

  2. Love that Hampton Arts stamp. I've not seen it before.

  3. Now I CAN hope I get one of these as I get 5 for my swap!! I adore the stamp and you've balanced the composition so well.

  4. Alison, I really like this ATC. I did not sign up for this swap - seeing your ATC I wish I had, then I might have received one in return. Lynne (Moncrieff - not Linda T!!!)
