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.

Tri Fold Oriental Card

Here are some piccies of the birthday card I mentioned last night. I managed to get up early this morning and make it so that I could get it in the post first class. Here's hoping that it arrives in time for this lovely lady's birthday tomorrow.

I have no worries of her seeing it as I know she doesn't blog, yet, lol

I made another of these Tri-Fold cards. They are so simple to do once you've decided on your theme.

This friend loves anything Oriental so I'm hoping she likes this.

  2. Great card, Alison! I think the lady will love it!
