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.

Bear In A Box

OK, so given the problems I had with my last posting lets see if the piccie displays for you all to see this time.
{Not looking hopeful having just checked the draft. You'll need to 'hover' again, lol}
This cute image is a Freebie by the ABC Christmas Challenge people to combine with their sketch for their latest challenge. Such an easy image to colour with copics: E000, 31, 33, 93, R35, 37, YG03, B00.

I've used Kars X-mas Collection DP and some ribbon and adhesve stars from my stash.

Hope you like it and here come the challenge links, x
