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.

Crafts & Me #20 - Anything Goes

 Hey! Ho! I may be back in blogland but now my computer is paying silly beggars and not allowing me to resize and crop my piccies, although this is intermittently. So, apologies but this is the best you're gonna get.

I've sent this to a fellow blogger who has a birthday today so I couldn't upload it before, but I thought it was a cutie to enter for the current Crafts & Me Challenge which is Anything Goes.

I've coloured the Elisabeth Bell image with copics, although I didn't keep a note of the numbers, sorry. The DP are by Basic Grey - Porcelain.
I hope you like it and the challenge link is below, x
