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.

The Button Tree

Just in case you're wondering I didn't get up early to make these cards, I did them yesterday evening.

This is another variation of the 'naked' tree stamp (Judith) that I showed you the other day, this time decorated with buttons. I've used 3 buttons in each of 3 colours - red, pink and orange and mounted it on DP from a 12 x 12 stack by K & Co called 'Que Sera Sera'. Its actually one sheet but using both sides. There are some fabulous colours in this stack, really yummy. Gems and bow from my stash.

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