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.

Jumping for Joy and 'D' is for Daisies

Whoopee! Having a really good day today. First I heard that I'd won the recent Just Magnolia Challenge and then found out I'd won a prize in the Creative Cottage Blog Hop. This is on top of winning a challenge a couple of weeks ago. Can't believe it...

Anyway, down to business. Over on KCUK we have been challenged to make a chunky alphabet book by swapping pages with other participants. I've just completed my next 3 so here is 'D' for Daisies.

The background is one I had left over from a sheet I made a while ago. I stamped the Daisies by Australian Company 'Great Impressions' in Stazon and painted the leaves with watercolour. I then stamped the image again in Memento and coloured the flower centre with copics and decoupaged onto the first image.

Flower eyelets and brads finished it off.

Hope you like it, x
