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.

More Challenge Creations and Off to Paris

Just managed to get this card done before we go off to Paris tomorrow for the weekend. Not a romantic one but a visiting family one, lol.

Anyway, I am entering this card into the following challenges: MoJo Monday Sketch 127; Allsorts - using a tag; and Pile It On - get well card.

I've used Tilda in the rain and hand written the tag asking 'Feeling under the weather?' after I'd stamped stars in Versafine Smokey Grey.

I've coloured Tilda with Copic Ciaos.

The DP is Paper Pizazz Birthday range and I can't remember where I got the cloth brads but thought the pattern resembled the raindrops.

I've matted Tilda onto a chipboard framey coloured with a Colorbox cats eye pad in Peacock.

I hope you like it and the challenge links are below, x
