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.

Truly Scrumptious #28; Pile It On #10; A SpoonFull of Sugar #95; The Treehouse THT041

OK, this is better. After I posted the last blog message I noticed that my editing had obliterated part of the card. My excuse is that I've had a c--- week, lol.

So, I've made this card for the very kind vet who looked after our bunny even going beyond the call of duty and nursing him at home. I've used the sketch from the current Truly Scrumptious Challenge as my baseline inspiration. The Treehouse Thursday Challenge was to use a Thank You theme and with it being a little bunny I thought it was also appropriate to enter it into the current Spoon Full of Sugar Easter Challenge. Finally Pile It On are challenging us to use pastels.

I've coloured the little girl with my.....wait for it......Copics. Not sure who makes this cute stamp as I acquired it but it stamps a really crisp image and is brill for colouring.

Hope you like it and the challenge links are below, x
