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.

Out Of Africa

Good Evening everyone. I've been a busy little bee this evening catching up on some bits for my Yahoo Group and also managing a couple of challenges.

Here is the first of my uploads for this week's Wednesday Stamper which was challenging us to 'Wild Animals'.

I've done another canvas to complement the elephant one I did last week. I'm trying to do a series to mount on the wall in our spare bedroom.

The stamp is by Stampendous (Lioness Collage). The canvas has been coloured with Adirondack dabbers in Terracotta, Peach Bellini, Red Pepper and Denim, with small amounts of Lettuce, Willow and Butterscotch.

I hope you like it and the challenge link is below, x



  1. Great wild card, clever how you spelled out Africa!

  2. Wonderful card, and I love the spelling!!
