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.

Papertake #36 Sketch Challenge and The Treehouse CAS Challenge

Good evening everyone. A quick note to update you on bunny before I launch into my challenge card. He is coping really well with his full leg of plaster, lol. Apart from some medicine which goes into his water container he also has to have 2 different ones by syringe. One he just loves, must be sweet, but the other he hates so unfortunately he has to be hauled out of his hutch for forceful administration!!! The only problem at the moment seems to be that he's off his food but hopefully that's just temporary, and to be honest I think I'd be off my food if I'd gone through his trauma.

Onto my challenge card, perhaps this should have been a bunny.... Anyway I've used the sketch from the latest Papertake Challenge and over at The Treehouse they wanted something Clean and Simple (CAS) and I thought this fitted the bill especially as the papers and the ribbon were from the 'scraps' box. The little dog was the freebie stamp with this month's Craft Stamper which I've coloured with Copics.

Hope you like and the challenge links are below, x
