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 #46; Roses On Paper #33; ABC - P is for Paper Piecing; Totally Papercrafts #7

Happy Mothers' Day to everyone who celebrates it. I had a lovely day with my 2 Sons and one of my little Grand-daughters'.

I've made this card for 4 challenges today firstly using the current Just Magnolia #46 sketch challenge.

I've combined this with the current Roses On Paper Challenge #33 which is Easter. I love this little Tilda image, she looks like she is announcing something.

The ABC Challenge is P for paper piecing and I have done this with Tilda's wings. Not the easiest to cut out and then matt but I'm pleased with the result.

Finally, Totally Papercrafts #7 has a challenge for 'things with wings', hopefully Tilda is included in this, lol.

I've coloured Tilda with my copics and also the little piece of chipboard with the text. The papers are from a freebie pad with a recent craft magazine and the eggs are from my stash.

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