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.

Just Magnolia #4 and Totally Papercrafts #9

As you can see I've been busy this evening and have created another card for another couple of challenges.

This one is for a friend's birthday but I'm also entering it in the current Just Magnolia sketch challenge and the Totally Papercrafts Challenge #9 which is pink and green.

I've coloured Tilda with my copics:-
skin - E00, E02, E21
hair - E31, E33, E35
dress - G000, G00, G02
petticoat - RV02, RV04, RV06

The DP is K & Co from my stash.

I've used a pink gelly roll to edge some of the flowers, and have used my new McGill punch for the leaves.

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