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.

Charisma Cardz #1; Cute Card Thursday #146; Lets Ink It Up #8; Allsorts #85

Hello Everyone. Can't remember if I blogged yesterday or not DUH!!! So I hope you all had a good weekend. This is a new fold for me 'Tent Fold' card which I was inspired to do from the Whiff of Joy Inspirational blog. I hope you like it.

I coloured Tilda with copics: E21, 93, E31, 33, 35, R02, 05, 08, YR20, 23 and Promarker in Satin. This is because I realised at yesterday's workshop that my E00 was contaminated and the only replacement available to me was the Promarker. However, I must say I wasn't disappointed.

The DP are from my stash (donkeys years old) as are the flowers and brads.
I'm entering it in the following challenges:-

Charisma #1 - Birthday
Cute Card Thursday # 146 - Out with the Old (that'll be the DP and brads)
Lets Ink It Up #8 - Anything Goes
Allsorts #85 - Fancy Fold
