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.

Simon Says; Lilli of the Valley; Treehouse Thursday # 55; Corrosive Challenge #70

Yeh! A card at last, lol

I've used the Lilli Of The Valley Challenge Sketch to base my card on and as the Simon Says Challenge was based on Friendship I thought what a perfect reason to create a card for my SOTH (Sister Of The Heart) on our KCUK Group.

The Treehouse Thursday Challenge (THT055) was to use the colours pink, moss green and white. I hope the combination of Adirondack inks in Lettuce and Cranberry cover this ok.

Finally, Corrosive Challenge wanted flowers. I think the image and DP covers this challenge.

The DP is from a selection I received from my SOTH. The main image is 'Lilac' by Papermania, and the background stamp is 'Wildflower Background' by V & A.

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