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.

Twenties Elegance

Just sharing with you a quickie card I have made taking inspiration from an old 'Take Ten' magazine. Sometimes you just need to flick through the mags to get the ideas going again. I'm quite pleased with the way its turned out and already have another image stamped ready to go.
I needed to do this quickly as I need to get it in the post tomorrow for a birthday.
Don't know about anyone else but we've finally had some sunshine today. It was so lovely to see and made the fact that I was working this morning slightly more bearable.


  1. Striking colour combination, Alison :) Yes, we had a bit of sun, too - nice, wasn't it? But our snow's more or less gone - sad...

  2. Thanks Cath. Will upload my other one now.
    My blogs are like buses....I don't update for a few days and then I send a few out, lol, x

  3. Love it Alison, made a lovely job of that

  4. Lovely card Alison. xxx Hazel.

  5. I love this card and the stamp. Having a bit of a Flapper moment myself - not Blogged as yet! Lynne M x
