- 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.

I've made this card for one of my Son's carers. The brightly coloured shoes are just typical of him, anything quirky fits his bill.
The fab image is one of the older Sugar Nellie guys called Chef Hamish. I've coloured him with copics:-
skin - E21, 93 and Promarker Satin
clothes - B93, 95, C1, 3
shoes - BG13, 15
balloons - B93, 95, 97, C5, E27, 29
BTW. The balloons are part of a digi delights image that I dissected. Originally I had balloon brads but having slept on it I decided that it needed a bit more depth. So I got out my balloon punch and stamp and the stazon and oops!!! made a mess of it. So off came the brads, tricky once the papers were already stuck, and the new design was created. I hope I've pulled it off OK.
The DP are by MME 'Wild Asparagus', and the sentiment stamp is a Craft Stamper freebie.
I hope you like it and I'm entering it into the following challenges, x
