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.

Easy Peasy Christmas Card

Yep! Another Christmas Card, this time a really quick one to do. That's once you've come up with the idea, lol.

Simply Less Is More challenge this week is a sketch but using a tall, thin card ie DL. Mine is a smaller version. Then the Creative Card Crew wanted no stamps used......that wasn't such an easy task. Finally Winter Wonderland are asking for baubles.

The bauble is cut with a nestie from a Crafty Individual's pre-printed image, the DP is Memory Box 'mistletoe' from Crafty Emma's Store, and the ribbon is from my stash.

Simple but effective, some would say that sounds just like me, lol.

Here come the links, x
