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.

Sketch Saturday #95; Stampavie #20; Wednesday Stamper - Spring

Hi Everyone. What a rotten evening, and after such a lovely day too. I'm glad I got out and did a little gardening before the heavens opened and also had a nice walk in the park with the dogs.

My delivery of Sarah Kay stamps arrived today from The Quixotic Paperie and I was itching to get them inky. I started off with this little one 'How sweet you are'.

I've used the current Sketch Saturday challenge as my baseline inspiration and wanted to use this stamp with the cute little chick to enter the current Stampavie Challenge which is Easter. I'm also entering it for the current Wednesday Stamper Challenge which is Spring. I've coloured Sarah Kay with my Copics as follows:-
Skin - E00, E02, E21
Chick - Y02, Y06, E35
Hat - YR02, YR04
Scarf and Jumper - YG00, YG03, YG06
Dungarees - BG01, BG05

The papers are from MyMindsEye Spring collection and I've added some white pearlised gems to bling it up a bit.

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