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.

Deco Pages from Vixykins

These stunning pieces of artwork arrived today from the wonderfully talented Vix at http://vixykins.blogspot.com
The pages are for my deco book on our Yahoo Group (KCUK) and my theme is 'Me and My Imaginary Friend'. I have left this open to interpretations really and Vix has used her first page to depict her youth whilst the second page is looking more at what she feels she has become. (I think I've got that right Vix!!!).
Anyway, I hope you'll agree that her artwork is stunning as always and her colouring is excellent.
She is such a gem that she sent me a card with instructions on her colouring technique to help me with my learning curve in Copics and Promarkers.
If you've not seen her work before, hop on over to her blog and take a peek.
Off to bed now so nighty night everyone, x
