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.

Relaxing Ronnie

If you've not heard of Ronnie then please click the link on my sidebar to find out more about him.
Anyway, Ronnie may well be relaxing on this card but I have managed to combine 5 challenges so there's been no relaxing for me, lol

I've used the current sketch on Mojo Monday (#135) as my template. Obviously the image is Relaxing Ronnie, which I have coloured with my copics (B93, 95, 97, BG01 05, 09, 93, 96, 99, R35, 37, C1, 7, E04, 31, 33, 35).

Both the Creative Card Crew #48 and A Spoon Full of Sugar are asking for Happy Birthday cards.

Then there's the recipe for Totally Papercrafts #13 which is 4 embellishments, 3 papers, 2 ribbons and 1 image.

Finally there's Emma's charity challenge in memory of her Dad Ronnie.

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