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.

Scraplets and Eyelets Card

Another scheduled blog to share with you. This time its a card I made totally from scraps for our recent challenge on KCUK Yahoo Group.

The front and back are joined together with eyelets and then decorated with ribbon. The Crafty Individuals image was stamped on a scrap of white which I coloured with chalks and then fixed behind a negative from a nesties die. This was held together with more eyelets and then stuck to the front cover.

Finally I scored a hinge to allow it to open.

Hope you like it, x
