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.

Our Creative Corner; Creative Card Crew Challenges

Our Creative Corner this week is challenging us to 'Christmas in July'.

I've been having a play around with the Criss Cross cards and thought I'd incorporate this challenge.

The Christmas DP are from my stash and unfortunately I can't remember who makes them.

I've coloured Tilda with my copics as follows:-

skin - E00, 02, 21
hair - E33, 35, 37
boots - E33, 35
outfit - R22, 24, 27, 29
muff - YG63, 67

I've also added some sparkle to the white 'fluffy bits' and her wings, after all it is Christmas, lol

The sentiment on the inside is by Simple Expressions

I'm also entering this for the Creative Card Crew Challenge which is Cute and Girlie.

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


  1. I do like it Alison, I would say you have done a darn good job
