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.

Friday Sketchers #115; Wild Orchid Challenge #3; Crafty Cardmakers #27; Crafts & Me #11

I wanted to share this pretty little card I've made for my Grand-Daughter's 3rd birthday this Sunday.

This is another of the new Papermania Stamps and I just thought it was perfect for her - she's even got her hair although Casey's is curly.

I've coloured her with copics as follows :-

skin- E00, 02, 21
hair - E35
pinafore - RV21, 23, 25
t-shirt - BG01 + blender
swing & shoes - E33, 35
ground - W1, 3, 5

The DP is by Papermania - Rose Garden

The chipboard No 3 is coloured with Adirondack Dabbers in Pink Sherbert and Raspberry

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the pearls are from The Hobby House.

I've stamped the leaves with my McGill pine leaf punch.

I'm entering this into:

Friday Sketchers #115

Wild Orchid #3 - One For The Girls

Crafty Cardmakers #27 - Birthdays

Crafts & Me #11 - Petals and Pearls

Hope you like it, x
