- 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.

A heart can be for Christmas, not just for Valentines Day
I've just bought (in a sale) a set of Papermania clear stamps in the Henbury Lane range and realised I had the matching DP at home. How clever was that then!!!
The sentiment by Simple Expressions reads 'Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful'. Isn't that a lovely verse.
I've used my new L-Em punch to punch out the leaves.
The heart I've coloured with my copics. Phew, what a job that was trying to get the colour just how I wanted it. After a lot of colouring and blending and huffing and puffing I finally achieved my colour by using E27, R37, RV29 and a lot of blender pen. The leaves are coloured with YG63, 67.
I hope you like it and I'm entering it into the following challenges, x
