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.

Friday Sketchers #91 and Just Magnolia Birthdays

Okey dokey I'm back in challenge mode which is a good job as my MoJo doesn't co-operate now unless I'm following a challenge, lol

This cute little Just Magnolia image of Edwin on a Pencil was just the right thing to send to a little boy I know who has a birthday this weekend. Fortunately, Just Magnolia's current theme is Birthdays.

I've used Friday Sketchers for the design inspiration, and coloured Edwin using my Copics.

Hope you like it and the challenge links are below, x
