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.

Friday Sketchers; Gingersnap Creations GC47; Cute Card Thursday #106

Okay, so this is the last one for this evening. Are you bored yet??? Oops! Just realised its now early in the morning.....

I've made this card following the current Friday Sketchers Sketch Challenge although I've rotated it to fit the image, which is a download from the Craft Stamper vintage range.

I've used my nestabilities to create the shapes and matted the pups onto copper mirri board to fit in with the current Gingersnap Creations GC47 colour theme.

Finally the current Cute Card Thursday #106 Challenge was to either make an Easter card or use an egg/oval shape.

The DP is from MME and the pearls are from the Hobby House.

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