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.

A Spoon Full of Sugar; Crafty Cardmakers;Cupcake #103; Creative Card Crew

Evening Bloggers, another chilly day up here in Yorkshire.

I've used the current Spoon Full of Sugar sketch to show off this cute little Tilda. I've coloured her with copics:-

skin - E00, 02, 21
hair - E33, 35, 37
dress - R20, 22, 24
socks - R20, 22
ribbons - R24, 27

The DP are from K & Co and I've used some of the scraps to punch out flowers, and also some McGill pine leaves. The 'Love' bellie is by 'Paper Heart'.

As well as a nestie, I've used a large flower punch to matt Tilda onto.

The lace down the centre is actually 2 pieces joined together by threading pink ribbon through the 'eyelets'

I'm also entering this into the Crafty Cardmakers spotlight on punches challenge; Cupcake Challenge #103 which is asking for lace; and the Creative Card Crew (again) which is asking for 'cute and girlie'.

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