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.

MoJo Monday #146; Theme Thursday; ABC 'Y'

I was planning on uploading this before Midnight ie Saturday and then when I got upstairs to the PC it was Sunday.....How did I lose a day simply by climbing the stairs?????

Anyway, I'm a little disappointed in my creation but will share it anyway. I think my mind was on the events of the day and not the creation but here goes....

I've used the sketch from the current MoJo Monday Challenge. I am also entering it in the Theme Thursday Challenge which is Animals, and finally the ABC Challenge is 'Y' for 'You and Me'.

The Alice stamp was a gift from my good friend Dot which I have coloured with Copics - not my best effort, sorry.

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