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.

Charisma Cardz #37; Just Magnolia #73; Totally Papercrafts #34

Good Evening everyone. Hope you've had a warm sunny day like we've had in West Yorkshire. I managed to get some gardening done. Not sure how many more gardening days are left.

I've made this card for my friend's birthday but I'm also entering it into the following challenges:-

Charisma Cardz #37 -Sketch

Just Magnolia #73 - Lace It Up

Totally Papercrafts #34 - Happy Birthday

I've coloured Tilda with copics as follows:-
skin - E00, 02, 21
hair - E33, 35, 37
dress - RV21, 23, 25, 29
wings - RV21 + blender

The DP are Prima 'Annalee'

The butterfly charm is from my stash as are the flowers and beads.

I punched holes in the side panel with my Crop-O-Dile to lace the ribbon through.

Hope you like it, x
