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.

OCCSC10; THT044; Something Completely Different; CreativeCardCrew Challenges

Good Evening Bloggers. Wanted to get this one uploaded to my blog before I hop off to bed.

I've followed the current Our Creative Corner Sketch challenge and hope you like my take on it.

The colours of Yellow, Lavender and Neutral were in keeping with The Treehouse Challenge. The stamp, BTW, is another of my NEC bargains from Inkadinkadoo. I've decoupaged the top aspect by using one of my new nesties (another NEC purchase).

Something Completely Different challenged us to use the letter 'B'. What better way than with balloons, lol.

Finally, The Creative Card Crew current challenge is 'Happy Birthday'.

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






  1. Fantastic choice for B - balloons. Didn't think of that! Thanks for playing at SCD this week.

  2. Very nice Alison, you are a busy bee

  3. Gosh, Alison - you have been busy since I last visited! Great work though, I love all of them.
