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.

Cute Card Thursday #109; Just Magnolia #52

Evening everyone. I now have a totally poorly household, except me that is. Doggy still recovering, hubby poorly with really bad ear infection, although he's going back to work tomorrow, and now Son with what sounds like could be the start of a chest infection. Hey Ho!

So, in true me fashion I told 'em to get on with it as I had a challenge to enter, lol.

I've made this card for a friend's daughter who has a birthday this Saturday. When she was little she was always standing in front of the mirror and asking her mum 'do I look pretty?' This Princess Tilda just fits the bill perfectly.

I've coloured her with copics:-
skin - E00, 02, 21
hair - E31, 33, YR02
dress - R20, 22, 27
shoes - R27

I am entering this for the Cute Card Thursday sketch challenge #109 and Just Magnolia challenge #52 which was 'Anything Goes'.

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