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.

MoJo Monday; The Creative Cottage; Colour Q Challenges

Evening bloggers. I hope you've all had the lovely sunshine today. Wasn't it warm. I managed to get some gardening done, after I'd finished work, and then I've been having a play this evening creating this card.

I'm not sure it I like it but I was wanting to attempt the current Colour Q Challenge which I found quite difficult. I've also managed to incorporate the current MoJo Monday sketch and thrown in a bow and some buttons to enter the Creative Cottage #5 challenge...phew!

The image is a real cutie designed by Jozart designs for Stamp Attack. I love using this image for 'New Home' cards which is where this one is going - we have new neighbours.

The main background card is Bazill cardstock and the rest are from Kanban.

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