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.

Have a Heart

Ah! I think Tilda is desperate to give her heart to someone. Maybe by December she'll be in luck. Initially I made this card for the current Winter Wonderland challenge (another one to add to my Christmas box) which is 'To The One I Love', but I've incorporated the Friday Sketchers Challenge for this week.

I've coloured Tilda with copics as follows :-

skin - E21, 93 and Promarker Satin
hair - E50, 51, 53, 31
clothes - G21, 28, R32, 35, 37
shadows - W1, 3, 5

The DP are by Papermania 'Henbury Lane'. They are so yummy and I'm going to have to buy some more soon, lol.

The sentiment is by Simple Expressions.

I'm also entering this card in the current Daring Cardmakers challenge which is being sponsored by the ribbon reel Their challenge is to use 2 ribbons/trims, at least one button and at least 1 heart.

Also the current Cupcake Craft Challenge #129 and Oldie But A Goodie challenge #12 both want hearts added.

So, I hope you like it and here are all the challenge links below, x
