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.

Bon Voyage

The creative juices are flowing again and here is my next card from the new Craft Zone.

I have made it for a friend over on one of my Yahoo Groups as I need to send some money for a trip some of us are going on.

The image is by Crafty Individuals and has the words Bon Voyage in the top corner. Very appropriate for this card.

I'm entering it in the One Stop Craft Sketch Challenge #67 and also the Totally Papercrafts Challenge which asks for spots to feature in the creation.

Links are below. Hope you like, x
