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.

She wanted to be a Princess!

Well, I failed in uploading this last night. The sleep fairies were beckoning so I succumbed and left this little beauty ready to upload this morning, and what a morning.....we've had snow!!! Only little flakes that haven't settled but all the same its SNOW...We're half way through April for goodness sake.

Anyway, back to the card. I'm entering this in the Spoon Full Of Sugar Sketch 99 challenge; Crafts and Me #2 are asking for the colours Brown, Pink and Yellow; and finally Theme Thursday is asking for Hats or Crowns.

I've used one of Lisa's Altered Arts images as my focal point. She looks as though she's about to stamp her feet, lol. I've mounted her onto a nesties shape. The papers are HOTP. The crown is coloured with Adirondack dabbers and blinged with adhesive pearls from The Hobby House.

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