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.

Paper Sundaes #32; Just Magnolia #69; Wild Orchid #4; Creative Card Crew; Papertake Weekly #47

Well, here's my second post of the evening, a cute little Christmas Card.

I've used the sketch from the current Paper Sundaes challenge but added an extra snowflake to fit in with the current PapertakeWeekly Challenge #47. This was a 3 2 1 recipe and I've used 3 snowflakes, 2 DP, and 1 image.

Wild Orchid #4 is challenging us to 'Make It Sparkle', and the Creative Card Crew are asking for 'Sparkle & Shine', so as well as the sparkly snowflakes I've added some stickles to Tilda's wand.

Finally, Just Magnolia #69 is asking us to 'Get Sentimental'. This lovely sentiment is by Simple Expressions and I thought it fitted the image perfectly.

I've coloured Tilda in the following copics :-

skin - E00, 02, 21
hair - Y21, 26, 28
dress - RV 21, 23, 25, 29
shoes - RV 25, 29
socks - B32, 34
wand - B32 + blender

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