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.

Pixie Cottage #54, Stampin For The Weekend #2; Crafty Creations #103

Good Morning. I'm back from a fabby weekend away in Perthshire and here to show you a couple of cards this morning made using the same image but in different colours. Hope you like them. Here's the first one.

The image is by Kraftin Kimmie and I thought it was a real cutie. I've coloured him with the following copics:-
E93, 31, 33, 27, 29, 08, 50, 53
R02, 05, 08
C3, 5, 7
W1, 3, 5, 7
Blender pen

The DP are by Papermania ' Sunshine'.

The pearls are from The Hobby House. The swirl is a die cut which I've 'doctored' to fit the sketch. Buttons from my stash.

The challenge links are below, x
