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.

Just Hanging Around...

Well here I am again like the proverbial bad penny with another challenge card for you. This is a new digital image for me this evening from the Digi Doodle Shop. What a cute little puddy cat, aw.....I've deliberately given him only one white paw and he's 'just hanging around' waiting to send a greeting to someone.

I've coloured him with copics:
E93, 08, 33, 37, 43, 47, 49
YG03, 63, 67
R05, 08

The DP is by Papermania 'Sunshine'

The pearls (which I've coloured with copics) and the rosebuds are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:-

Wild Orchid Challenge #14 - sketch - I rotated this to fit the image
Cupcake Craft Challenge #124 - Something New - that'll be the little puddy cat
Craft Your Days Away (CYDA) #11 - Anything Goes

I hope you like it, x
