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.

Papertake Weekly; Paper Sundaes #26; One Stop # 88; Treehouse Thursday #57

Evening Bloggers. I'm the right side of Midnight this time, lol.

I've made this card for a friend's Grandson's 4th Birthday but thought I'd enter it in a few challenges while I was at it.

I've used the sketch from the current Papertake Weekly Challenge.

Both the One Stop Challenge and Treehouse Thursday Challenge is to go 'monochromatic', and finally Paper Sundaes are asking for lots of layers, I've counted 5 plus the base card.

The VW Beetle is a Funstamps stamp which I have coloured with Copics :

R35, 37, C3, 5, 7, 8

The papers are oddments from my stash.

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