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.

Pixie Cottage #37; CRAFT #69; Creative Cottage #23

Good Evening everyone. What a miserable and dull day its been. Still its given me a chance to make some cards. That's after several hours of phone calls to sort my poorly car out. Its now an insurance job cos the damage is more extensive than we thought:(

Anyway, this card didn't exactly start out like this but I thought I'd still upload it and enter it for some challenges.

The image is a Lily of the Valley from the 'Boy Oh Boy' plate and the papers and letters are from a 7 Gypsies pack.

Hope you like it and I'm entering it in the following challenges:-

Pixie Cottage #37 - Sketch + Fun and Games

CRAFT #69 - Teenagers

Creative Cottage #23 - Birthday Boy
