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.

Sketch and Stash #41; Play Date Cafe #42

Hello Bloggers. What a miserable day its been today and so cold that we've had to put our heating on this evening. What's going on???

Anyway, I cheered myself up colouring in this little cutie (again) with copics. I think he is adorable and just to remind you he's by Papermania. I've used the following colours:-

skin - E00, 02, 21
hair - E33, 35, 37
t-shirt - YG63, 67
dungarees - E27, 29
boots - E04, 08
ground - E33, 35

The papers are all from my stash.

I've used the Sketch and Stash Challenge #41 sketch as my template and incorporated some of my new stash of buttons.

I'm also entering this in the PDCC #42 challenge which was to use the colours 'dark brown, green, and beige'.

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