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 #90; Charisma Cardz; Digi Doodle #43; Winter Wonderland

Hiya All, just realised I didn't blog yesterday although I did make this pretty little card yesterday evening. I've used the current Just Magnolia sketch with DP from Blonde Moments. Not sure what Dyan would make of a Tilda with Blonde Moments papers, lol. Anyway, I think the two suit each other quite well.

I've coloured Tilda with copics E08, 21, 31, 33, 35, 93, V12, 15, 17, RV34, BG10, 15, and Promarker in Satin. I've also added some sparkle to her hat.

The challenge over at Charisma Cardz is 'Magic Numbers' and I thought why not the 25th of December. Digi Doodles #43 Challenge is 'Anything Goes', and Winter Wonderland are asking for Pink and Purple.

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