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.

Day Dreamer

This is my second upload for this evening. This time it is following the sketch challenge over at The Pixie Cottage.

Colour Create Challenge #42 is challenging us to use the colours lilac, grey and white and also some gingham. Finally, Something Completely Different asked for the letter 'D' to be represented.

The stamp is by KayCee and is Lady and Rose Silhouette which I have stamped in Versafine Smokey Gray. I have surrounded her with adhesive pearls from The Hobby House.

All the papers are from my stash of lilac and fortunately for one of the challenges one of them has the word 'Dream' printed over it. The lady looks as though she could be dreaming.

The lilac spotted ribbon is laying over white organza ribbon.

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