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.

Evening Everyone. I hope you're all having a lovely weekend. We are just home from having a lovely but exhausting day with our Grand-Daughter #1. This is the first time we've taken her out on her own for a while and we have really enjoyed ourselves.

Anyway more of that another day.

So as I'm too cream crackered to make and upload a card this evening I thought I would share with you the 2 deco pages I made for the wonderfully talented Vixykins as part of our deco swap on KCUK.

Her theme is wings.

Both images have been coloured with copics, sorry but I didn't keep a note of the colours.

The top page is a bargain stamp I picked up at the NEC and the bottom one is a Lavinia. I know what Vix is like for creating whacky and wonderful hair colours so I decided to go purple and green!!!

I know she's received the pages now which is why I'm safe to upload them here.

Hope you enjoy looking at them, x

    I could freez you some plums but they are not that nice frozen and I ain't got a lot of room so could only freeze you a few

  2. Lovely pages, Alison and I love that bottom image! Gorgeous! Wish I could get to like her stamps but they never stamp properly for me - boohoo!
