- cockney blonde
- 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.

Creative Card Crew; Digi Doodle #42; Totally Papercrafts; Daring Cardmakers
I've actually made this card for my Mum who will be 88 next week. Tilda maybe a bit cutesy for her but she'll love the idea of the 'prom' type image and of course the flowers. I've coloured Tilda with copics:-
skin - E21, 93 and Promarker in Satin
hair - E31, 33, 35
clothes - YG00, 03, 06, 09
tiara - RV02, 04
I've also added some adhesive gems to bling up her tiara
The ribbon on the front is actually two. An organza overlaid with the pretty narrower spotty ribbon. Using 1 image, 3 papers and 2 ribbons is the criteria for this week's Daring Cardmakers challenge.
Finally the 'trellising' inside has been created with a Martha Stewart punch.
I hope you like it and the links are below, x
