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; Totally Papercrafts; Pile It On; Allsorts #48

Good Morning Bloggers, didn't get around to blogging yesterday evening as I was trying to get a challenge finished on our Yahoo Group. Anyway this is the card I did make, not sure how happy I am with it as I don't usually have so little stamping involved.

I've used the current Friday Sketchers sketch as my template. Totally Papercrafts and Pile It On were both asking for a 'Spring' theme, and finally Allsorts asked for 'In Stitches' whether they be real or faux.

The cute image is from Rie Cramer, the papers are MME and the pearls are Hobby House.

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