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.

Warm Greetings on a Cold Day

Hello Bloggers. I've been busy the past couple of days but here's a quicky I threw together this afternoon.

Another cute little Tilda shivering in the cold. Hopefully the little greeting will warm her up. I've coloured her with copics a follows:-
skin - E21, 93 and Promarker Satin
hair - E31, 35
boots - E33, 35
wings - G00, BG10
coat - BG10, 15, G00
fur - G000 plus stickles to add some sparkle
skirt - C1, 3, 5

The sentiment is by Hero Arts. The DP are from my stash. The flowers have been created by a Woodware punch and then fixed with grey sparkly brads.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:-

Sketch Saturday #137 - sketch
Papertake Weekly - cold and frosty morning
Play Date Cafe (PDCC64) - aqua, beige and grey
Craft Your Days Away (CYDA) #11 - Anything Goes

Hope you like it, x
