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 #94 and Cute Card Thursday #104

Good evening fellow bloggers. I've very quickly rustled up this card for my big bruv's birthday next week. I've just downloaded this image from Mo's digital pencil site and was itching to get it onto a card.

I've used the current Friday Sketchers sketch challenge as my baseline inspiration. As usual I'm too late for the Theme Thursday masculine challenge but I am entering it into the Cute Card Thursday Challenge who are asking for an Anniversary/Birthday/Regular occasion card.

The papers are from Paper Pizazz birthday pad and I've coloured the image with watercolours.

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