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 Magnolia #87; Paper Sundaes #50; Tuesday Morning Sketches

Good Evening Bloggers. I'm a bit late with this one but I'm still getting back into the crafting mode.
Anyway, I'm entering this into the latest Just Magnolia Challenge which is Anything Goes and using the Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge as my template. This is a new challenge for me. I also found that Paper Sundaes were asking us to use something new and I have just received a new set of Nesties (scalloped circles) from Crafty Emmas Store, so it gave me a good opportunity to try them out.

I've coloured Tilda with copics as follows:-
E00, 21, 93
Y21, 26, 28
RV21, 23, 25
BG10, 15

The DP is by MME and the flowers are by Papermania. The pearls are from The Hobby House.

I hope you like it and the challenge links are below, x
