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.

I'm Getting Married In The Morning...

Well, I'm not, lol, but these 2 little cuties from the Digi Doodle Shop are. Aren't they just the cutest and lovely to colour with the old faithful copics. I've used:
E21, 31, 33, 35, 93, C1, 3, 5, RV21, 23, B32, G21 and Promarker in Satin

The pinky colour DP is from a Papermania pack - Exquisite - and the cream paper is from my stash. The absolutely scrummy flowers (curly Gardenia) I've just received from Crafty Emma's Store. At such a reasonable price I'll defo be getting some more.

I've used the current Pixie Cottage sketch as my template, Cupcake Crafts theme of 'Wedding', and Colour Create's colours of pink, blue, grey and cream + optional flowers to create this card. I'm also entering it into the Digi Doodle's Best current challenge which is anything goes.

I hope you like it and the links are below. Enjoy the rest of your weekend peeps, x
