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.

Owl's About It...

Mega challenge upload this evening bloggers. I've managed to incorporate 5 challenges with this little beauty. It was great to ink up this Crafty Individuals stamp as I've not had it that long and I don't think I've used it, or maybe once.

Anyway, I've used the sketch from the current Our Creative Corner challenge.

Both the Creative Cottage and One Stop are asking for 'things with wings'.

Paper Sundae wanted 'no people'.

Finally, Sunday Stamper's challenge was 'free as a bird', the emphasis being on FREE as in anything goes.

The pearls are from The Hobby House, no surprise there, lol.

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