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.

Friday Sketchers and Pile It On and a very special birthday

Perhaps my MoJo is back as 2 cards in one day is a miracle at the moment. I've not made 2 in one week lately. Anyway I wanted to get this one done as I promised Vix http://vixykins.blogspot.com/ that I'd make a card for a very special lady in her family who is 90 this week. Vix is trying to get 90 handmade cards for her.

While I was at it I used the Friday Sketchers sketch challenge #107 and Pile It On #24 was asking for stickers. These are the top and bottom borders from KanBan.

I've coloured the Sarah Kay image with my copics but as it was done a while ago I'm afraid I can't remember the numbers.

DP is MME - Asparagus.

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