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.

Seeing Triple

At last a quiet afternoon to play in my craft zone and do some blogging. You never know I may get around to trying out one of the challenges.
I had hoped to be playing yesterday afternoon but just as I got home from walking the hounds I got a call to pick Mark up as he was poorly. So instead I ended up making cakes!!! I know I could have been crafting but I had some ingredients to use before they went out of date.
Anyway, back to the craft zone. I've just created this, the second this week, which again I've got my inspiration from an old 'Take Ten'. The image is part of an Anita's stamp which I've stamped 3 times with stazon and then matted onto patterned paper, added ribbon, brad and sentiment and voila...a quick card. Hope you like.
Now off to search for a challenge....I could be sometime, lol, x
