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.

Think Monday Think ATC

Good Evening Bloggers. Hope you are all having a good weekend. I've had some peace and quiet as DH disappeared to footie early this morning and has only just arrived home (11pm) and DS is away overnight. So crafting in peace while listening to Simply Red on the TV.

I'd actually made a series of these ATCs for a monthly swap on KCUK and then realised that the Autumn theme fitted this week's Think Monday, Think ATC.

The single leaf (Personal Impressions) was stamped with Adirondack Butterscotch, Terracotta and Cranberry and then masked to create the leaves background (sorry not sure of the make). I stamped this background with Versafine Vintage Sepia.
