- cockney blonde
- 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.

Sugar Bowl #51; Spoon Full of Sugar #135; Papertake Weekly; Digi Doodle #43; Copic Creations #42
Anyhow, I made this card yesterday evening and thought I'd get it uploaded before I go off for a day's crafting with friends.
This is a new digital image from the Sugar Nellie people called Joy Sitting. I've got the full image (you can just get the head and shoulders) but for this card I've just used the top part and enclosed her in a scalloped nestie. The base DP is from my stash but the others are from Papermania - Henbury Lane. Scrummy papers, only just broken into, lol. I've coloured Joy with copics:-
E21, 31, 33, 35, 93, BG10, 15, B93, 95 and Promarker Satin
The ribbon is from my stash as is the top right bellie. The pearls are from The Hobby House.
I hope you like it and I'm entering it into the following challenges :-
Sugar Bowl #51 - Sketch
A Spoon Full of Sugar #135 - Blue and Green
Papertake Weekly - Ribbons and Pearls
Digi Doodle's Best #43 - Anything Goes
Copic Creations #42 - What's New? (image and DP)
