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 Saturday #114; PlayDateCafe #40

Hope I've managed to get this in in-time for the current Play Date Cafe challenge which is Black, White and a Hint of Green.

I've used a Crafty Individuals stamp which I've had for a little while but not got round to inking up.

After using my copics to 'green-up' the headband, I decided it was too vivid and so blended some of the colour out with the copic blender.

I don't know whether its deliberate or not but I think the bottom left lady looks like a young Princess Diana.

I've also followed the sketch on the current Sketch Saturday Challenge #114.

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



  1. Lovely splash of colour there, Alison.

  3. Great card in beautiful colours! Thanks for joining us at SS this week - good luck!
    Hugs, Lena K
