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.

Just Magnolia #62 Special Monthly Challenge - Criss Cross Card

Well, here is the reason there was no upload from me yesterday. Its taken me 2 evenings to finish it, lol.

I now understand what some others have said about the tutorial looking simple... It does, I agree, and I even did the bit about putting one side inside the other before cutting the second diagonal...mmm
 Anyway, you can't see the error on here and I have to say I'm quite pleased with the finished article    

I've coloured Tilda with copics (surprise! surprise!)    
 Skin - E00, 02, 21                                                  
Hair - E31, 33, 35                                                   
Clothes - R20, 22, E33, 35, 37

The DP is Papermania Signature range - Regency
The sentiment stamp is by Paper Inspirations and the corner stamp is by Clarity

I hope you like it and the challenge link is below, x
