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.

Happy New Year and Lili of the Valley #78 - New Beginnings

Happy New Year Everyone.

This cute little image is from Lili of the Valley and I had bought it for my Christmas cards but unfortunately with all my family traumas forgot all about it so I thought why not use it for a New Year card.

I've journalled in the top corner in an attempt to explain my choice of stamp, lol

I'm entering this into the current Lili of the Valley challenge which is New Beginnings. Appropriate in more ways than one for me.

I've used copics to colour as follows :-
C1, 3, 5, 7, 8
R20, 22, 24, 27, 29
W1, 3, 5 and blender
E21, 33 37

The background paper is from some leftover Basic Grey.

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