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.

Puff, The Magic Dragon...

Happy Friday everyone. The weekend is here, well almost.

I've been dying to use this fab digi image from Digi Delights and when I saw there were some challenges this week asking for fantasy, mythical, wings, etc I thought what a brilliant time to showcase him. He was so easy to colour too with only a handful of the old favourites required. Copics used: YG00, 03, 06, RV21, 23.

The papers are my MME 'wild asparagus' as is the ribbon, which I got from Crafty Emma's Store.

The ribbon brad is from my stash. I've had it for an absolute age and have no idea where I got it from. These brads seem to get forgotten.

Anyhow, I hope you like the card and I'm entering it in the following challenges, x

Sketch n Stash #55 - sketch
Corrosive Challenge #104 - Magical Creatures
Crafts and Me - Spread your Wings
Creative Card Crew - Fantasy
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - Spots/Dots
