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 with a sore head...

Evening Peeps. We're back from our weekend in the caravan. It was so totally relaxing and I got loads of images coloured with my old faithful copics. So I have loads of cards to upload over the course of the next couple of days.

This image is by Meljen Designs and could easily be my hubby after 24 hours with our Grand-daughter. Her and Daddy came and spent a night in the caravan, the first time for Casey, and she was unbelievably good. Even slept better than she does at home. However that could be something to do with running around in the fresh air with Grandad. Needless to say, Grandad is exhausted and needs a holiday, lol.

So back to the card. I was fortunate to win 4 images from Meljen Designs and chose this one, and isn't he just cute. I'm not sure if he's enjoying his bowl of tomato soup. I've coloured him with copics:-
fur - E31, 35, 51, 93
blanket - BG13, 15
hottie - YG91, 95
thermometer and tissues - C1, 3

The DP are MME - pretty please spring papers
