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.

Thank You Fairy Much...

Hello Peeps, are you all keeping warm with this sudden drop in temperature, brrrrr...

I've made this card to send as a thank you to a lovely lady. I won't say anymore incase she's blog hopping and spots it.

Anyhow, the stamp is by Lavinia which I have coloured with copics and then added some clear gems to her hairpiece.
Copics used:
E21, 93, BG93, 96, YR20, 23, R02, 05, 08, RV21, 23, 25, W1, 3, 5, Blender and Promarker Satin.

The DP is Prima - Fairy Flora, from Crafty Emma's Store, as are the wee carnation buds (white). Everything else is from my stash.

I hope you like it and I'm entering it in the following challenges :-

Friday Sketchers #138 - Sketch
CES Challenge Blog #20 - Angels and Fairies
Truly Scrumptious #49 - Brown, Pink and Green

I may not be back again this evening and then tomorrow we're off to Perthshire for the weekend, taking in our Scottish grandees while we're up there. So hope you all have a lovely weekend if I don't blog again before I go, x
