- 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.

65 years young
Anyhow, its given me some crafting time to make a card requested by a friend. I thought I'd go for the ever effective easel card as its for a special birthday.
The image is by Simple Expressions and I've stamped it in versafine vintage sepia. Told you I was a bit addicted to that ink pad at the moment, lol.
I've created the leaves with my Martha Stewart pine punch. Everything else is from my stash.
I hope you like it and I'm entering it into the following challenges, x
