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.

I Believe in Fairies

This is my contribution to the Quixotic Challenge - I believe in Fairies. I've combined it with a birthday card for someone I know won't be looking at my blog but who does like fairies. I realised when I'd finished that the colours were a bit autumnal, but I like that.
Fairy stamp is by Stamptivity; Toadstools and Leaves by Lavinia. The leaves were stamped in Versamark and then dusted with Blonde Moments Festive Candy Lustre Pearl Pigment Powder.
The paper is by K & Co, Classic K McKenna range.
I wonder what she is looking for, hidden in the toadstools?


  1. Very nice, Alison - I do like fairies :)
