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.

Truly Scrumptious # 34 and Treehouse Thursday #54

Bet you can't guess who this card is for, lol. Yep, its for the new parents of our little Grandson born on Friday. If nothing else its got me in the craft room again and given me a chance to enter a card for 2 challenges. Truly Scrumptious provided the inspirational sketch and Treehouse Thursday were asking us to use a favourite tool - currently mine is my recently bought nesties and Big Shot.
The image, one of my favourites, is 'Christmas Love' by Stamp-It, although I think it makes a really good new baby card. I've coloured it with copics.
The DP is Papermania's Rose Garden and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the pearls from the Hobby House.
Hope you like it and the links are below, x
