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.

Yay! I'm back with a challenge - Create4Fun

Yay! After a long absence I have finally felt able to return to my Craft Zone and start creating again. The reason for my absence has been family traumas and a bereavement but on a positive note we had a new Grandson born into the family on 11th December. I am now hoping to put 2010 firmly behind me and start afresh with positive vibes for 2011. So to kick off my pre New Year resolution here is my first challenge card for a while.

With comfort and familiarity comes Tilda, cradling a cute little ladybug. I've actually made this card for a lovely lady who has a birthday very soon but as she doesn't blog I know she won't see this. I've coloured Tilda with copics as follows:-
skin - E00, 21, 93
hair - E31, 33, 35
dress - RV000, 21, 23, 29
ladybug - RV29, C3, 5, 8
boots - YG63, 67

The DP are by Basic Grey 'Porcelain', and the text bellie is by Paper Heart

I hope you like it and the challenge link is below, x
