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 and ABC Challenge R is for Red

Ooer! Don't know what's happened with my photo but the base card is actually white not blue!!!

Anyway, I've made this card for a friend of mine who has broken her arm. I shouldn't laugh but it was in quite hilarious circumstances. Imagine a funeral hearst, coffin, and an ambulance.......

I digress...

I'm also entering this into the current Friday Sketchers challenge and the ABC R is for Red challenge.

The poppy has been coloured with my twinkling H2Os. I've used one of my new nesties to create the scalloped matt layer. Apologies for the peel offs but I was in a rush, lol

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