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.

Ruby Wedding Anniversary

Good Morning Bloggers. I know, its very unusual for me to blog in the morning but I intended to upload this card last night. However, bed was beckoning, lol.

I know its not everyone's cup of tea but I've made it 'to order' for a Ruby Wedding Anniversary. I've used the criss cross card format but allowing it to open to reveal the sentiment inside.

The stamp I've used is 'Heart Bouquet' by All Night Media and I've paper pieced the heart. The flowers have been coloured with copics: Y21, 26, B63, 66, G21, 28, YR15, R20, 24

Hope you have a good day and hopefully I'll be back later with another upload, x
