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.

Going to the Chapel...

Evening Peeps. A friend text yesterday asking how quick could I make her a wedding card??? There was me thinking it must be a 'shot-gun' wedding, but no, she'd just thought it would be a nice idea to have a hand crafted card to go alongside her hand crafted ring cushion.

I've used a Digi Doodles image and coloured with copics:-
skin - E21, 93, promarker satin
her hair - E50, 51, 53, 31
his hair - E31, 33, 35
suit and shoes - C3, 5, 8
flowers and ribbon - G21, V01, 05, 12

All the CS is from my stash and I've embossed round the edges of the lilac card with a cuttlebug embossing folder.

The curly gardenia are from Crafty Emma's Store, the others are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Anyhow, I've just seen that Digi Doodles next challenge is anything goes so I'm off to enter this there. Also Dream Valley challenge is 'new beginnings' so I'll enter it there too.

The links are below and I hope you like it, x
