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.

Just For You

Happy Saturday everyone. When is this rain ever going to stop!!! Had a lovely day today cos my #1 Son and Grand-daughter came over. We played, baked cakes, played some more, ate and ate some more. Really lovely but I'm cream crackered now, lol.

Put this easy peasy simple style card together this evening once I was able to get back in my craft room. I didn't make it too fussy as its for a 'bloke' and therefore fits in nicely with this week's Bearly Mine Challenge.
The ABC Challenge is 'N' for Nesties plus a sketch which I've managed to combine with my 'fold' card. Goodness knows what its called and I've adapted it again...

Fab and Funky Challenge #58 is to use Chocolate and Blue so I've coloured the LOTV image with the following copics :
E21, 93 and Promarker in Satin (skin)
E31, 33, 35 (hair)
B93, 95 (shirt)
E21, 27, 29 (shorts)
B93, 97 (shoes)
E04 (parcel)
W1, 3, 5, 7 (shadowing)
Plus loads of blender pen.

The Sentiment is also from LOTV and the DP is from my stash.

I hope you like it and here come the links, x
