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.

It's A Girl

Evening Everyone. Hope you've all had a good day. I've made this card for my hubby's cousin whose son and partner have just had their first baby. A girl called Isadora. What a fab name...

I've coloured Tilda with copics: E21, 93, and Promarker Satin (skin); E31, 33, 35 (hair); RV21, 23 and blender (dress); B60 (bubbles); W1, 3, 5 (shadows.

All the cardstock is from my stash as are the 2 ribbons. You can just make out the polka dot to the top ribbon. Flowers are from Samuel Taylor and pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Hope you like it and the challenges I am entering it into are below, x
