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.

Digi's with Attitude! #13; Sketch Saturday #138

Hello everyone, another sunny day here in West Yorkshire, although woke up to a very heavy frost.

This image is from the Digi's with Attitude! team and is called Shopping Tween. Unfortunately I must have printed her onto the wrong card cos my copics just didn't want to play ball, and of course at the same time the printer decides to throw its toys out of the proverbial pram so I couldn't reprint it. Hence I resorted to my water pencils. In the cold light of day the colouring looks as though it could have been better but hey! ho! that's life.

The current Digi's with Attitude! challenge is Green and Black - very Goth... and I've also used the current Sketch Saturday sketch as my template. The DP, ribbon, flowers and brads are all from my stash.

I hope you like it and the challenge links are below. I'll be back later with another card for you, x




  1. It's a great stamp and card - the colour combination works really well. I've not used digi-stamps that much as I'm never too sure about printing them either! Something I keep meaning to experiment with when I have time ....!!
