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.

Moi? Yes You

Well, I wasn't sure I'd get this done tonight as I'm now competing for occupancy in my 'Craft Zone'. Hubby has decided he quite likes it out there too....hmph!!!

Anyway, I've used the sketch from the current CRAFT challenge. I don't know who makes the stamp as it was given to me but I've stamped it in Versafine vintage sepia.  I think she's looking and saying Who Me??? (Moi?).

The DP are MME - wild asparagus and I've used my Nesties for the image and faux tag.

Seeing as the image stands for 'summer' (what's that???) or the beach/seaside, I'm also entering it into the Quixotic Challenge 'Life's a Beach'; Totally Papercrafts #28 'By the Sea'; and One Stop #92 'Summer Fun'.

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