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.

Lily Of The Valley; Our Creative Corner Challenges

Today I've enjoyed playing with my first ever Sweet Pea Stamp - Blue Eye Fairy. I've followed a sketch set by our Katys Corner Yahoo Group monthly challenge but thought I'd incorporate other elements so that it would fit in with 2 blog challenges.

I just love the way this image has been so easy to colour with my copics. Really beginning to love these now. I only bought the black copic yesterday, lol.

Anyway, I've background stamped a leaf image with VersaColor Atlantic Blue on the right and then used DP from my stash on the left. LOTV was asking us to incorporate blue and silver and OCC was asking for bows.

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