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.

Black and White

This is a card I've made for a Black & White Mingle for the KC Yahoo Group I belong to.
To me, black and white means elegance and sophistication so I hope I've interpreted that.
The stamp is an UM 'Lady & Rose Silhouette' by KayCee Crafts and I've edged the borders with an UM rose bud stamp.
Hopefully the recipient won't see this before she receives it.

  3. Thank you girls for your lovely comments. The one thing this blogging malarkey is doing for me is making me think a little more before I upload stuff so hopefully my artwork will improve, x
