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.

Truly Scrumptious Challenge

Apologies for the glare on the photo but I hope you can make it out OK.

I am entering this in the Truly Scrumptious Sketch Challenge.

The stamp is 'Building Bridges' by Penny Black. The faux stitching around the backing paper is because I forgot to distress it and it looked a bit bland. What isn't clear is the white buckle to the right side of the ribbon.

Hope you like it and the link for the challenge is below, x
