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.

Oldie But A Goodie #9; Cupcake Craft Challenge #123; Totally Papercrafts #48

Good Morning and a Happy Weekend to everyone. I don't know, my Mojo comes back and then my internet connection takes a hike!!! Anyhow I'm back and running (well strolling) now and here is this morning's offering for the following challenges:-

Oldie But A Goodie #9 - Sketch

Cupcake Craft Challenge #123 - White is White

Totally Papercrafts #48 - Say Thank You

The stamp is by Great Impressions which I have stamped in Versamark and then embossed in gold. The DP and cardstock are from my stash - I just love the embossed white card - and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I hope you like it, x
