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.

LOTV #61; PDCC #43; ABC Challenge

I've kept this little creation quite simple as it will be a boy's card and I don't think flowers and gems would be appreciated, lol. Sadly, my photo doesn't do it justice as 4 of the buttons are blue as is the ribbon/cord. I've also realised I've forgotten to shadow the little lad so I'll be off to do that once I've finished here. Must be time for bed...

Anyway, the cute image is by Lily Of The Valley and is part of an A5 plate I recently bought called 'Boy Oh Boy'.

The DP are by Prima - Annalee Collection. I've just order this pack and another from Crafty Emma's Store and they are absolutely delish. Its is shame to use them they are so yummy. She has loads of stuff so hop over and have a browse http://www.craftyemmasstore.co.uk/

I've used copics as follows to colour the image :-

skin - E00, 02, 21
hair - C3, 5, 7
shirt - G000, 00, 02
shorts - B00, 02
parcel - B00, 02, 05
bow - YG67

I'm entering this into the following challenges :-

LOTV #61 - Sketch

PDCC 43 - lime green, light blue and a touch of dark green (photo inspiration)

ABC - 'B' is for Blue

I hope you like it, x
