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.

Sketch Saturday #110, Crafts and Me #7, Pile It On #26

Apologies for the picture quality, I think I must have had too much flash.

I've used the sketch from the current Sketch Saturday challenge (#110) to show off Relaxing Ronnie, he gets everywhere. See the link on my sidebar if you want him. BTW, I coloured him with my copics but its a while ago now and I can't remember which ones, sorry...

My friend asked me to use this image to create a birthday card for her Step-Son's 30th so this fits nicely into the theme for this week's Crafts and Me Challenge - Birthdays.

Finally, Pile It On #26, are asking us to use our favourite things. Well, mine are buttons but I wouldn't mind some time to do my favourite pastime, vegging out in front of the telly with a hot chocolate and choccie biscuits, lol.

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