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.

Lucky Bird

If you like a progressive challenge then designed2delight is the place to go. This is my first time participating but if you enter the first challenge of the month with the freebie on offer then you get the chance to accumulate more free digi images.

So I've coloured Lucky Bird in yellows to signify the start of Spring. I think he's cute in his wellies just waiting on those Spring showers. I've used copics Y000, 02, 06, YR04, 07, YG03, 06, W1, 3, 5. Some of the DP is by DCWV and the remainder is from my stash.

I hope you like my interpretation of the current Create4Fun sketch and the challenge links are below, x
