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.

Pile It On #30; Colour Create #50; Creative Card Crew

Well, I had followed the sketch from the current Just Magnolia challenge but unfortunately left it a bit late to enter it.

Never mind, as I'm still entering it in the Pile It On #30 challenge which is asking for butterflies, bees or bugs.

Also the Colour Create Challenge #50, using the colours Hot Pink, Warm Orange and Saffron. I struggled a bit with the latter but I hope I've covered it OK.

Finally, the Creative Card Crew are asking for Cute and Girlie. You can't get much more cute and girlie than a Tilda.

I've coloured Tilda with my copics as follows:-
skin - E00, 02, 21
hair - E31, 33, 37
clothes - YR02, 04, 07, 12, 15
leaves - YG03, 06
flowers - RV23, 25, 29

The DP are a mixture of MME, DCWV, and K & Co

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