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.

Friday Sketchers; Oldie but Goodie #1

Well, goodness knows whats going on but I hadn't scheduled this to post and I have just logged on to upload it to the two challenges and noticed there were 3 comments????? There's a gremlin in the works somewhere, lol.

Anyway, as some of you have twigged, this card is for the Friday Sketchers Challenge (I've rotated their sketch) and also the first challenge for the new Oldie But Goodie Challenge Blog asking for New Beginnings using a stamp you've had for over 6 months.

Can't remember where I got the stamp but its by the Australian Company, Stamp It and its called Christmas Love. However, I frequently use it for new baby cards.

I've coloured the image with copics :

skin - E00, 21, 93
hair - E31, 33, 35
blanket - B00, 02

The DP is Prima 'Annalee', and the pearls are by the Hobby House.

I know that some of you already like it but I hope others do to and here are the challenge links, x
