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.

Sketch and Stash #52; Winter Wonderland; ABC Christmas Challenge

Dancing on Ice, eat your heart out. Don't Edwin and Tilda look great. Yeh! I know its a Christmas card but there's no harm in being prepared, lol

Anyhow, I'm entering this into the Winter Wonderland Challenge which is Lets Go Dotty, and also the ABC Christmas Challenge which is 'A' for Anything Christmas. I've also followed the sketch from the current Sketch and Stash Challenge - the stash being the snowflakes and ribbon.

I'm sorry but I didn't keep a note of the copics used to colour in our little pals but I can tell you that the DP is from Kars X-Mas Collection.

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