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.

Lots To Do; Creative Card Crew; Papertake Weekly; Rosie-D #77

Just realised I didn't blog yesterday or schedule a post for you.

Here's one I prepared earlier, lol. Well, almost! I started it on Monday and finished it off this evening.

I've used the Criss Cross card method again although this time it does open to the left - the ribbon is holding it closed.

I've coloured Tilda with my copics again but didn't keep a note of the colours, oops, sorry.

The DP are DCWV

I'm entering this into the Lots To Do Challenge which this week asks for ribbons and lace;

Creative Card Crew - Cute and Girlie

Papertake Weekly - Something old, new, borrowed or blue. In this case, the papers are new and I've used some blue;

Rosie-D's Challenge this week is to do 'more than one fold'
