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.

Merry Christmas!!!

OK, I know its only March but this is another one to add to my Christmas box.

This week Bah Humbug are asking for apertures so I've created another of my tent fold cards using Papermania 'Henbury Lane' DP and stamps. I've paper pieced the left side bauble, first with red, and then the leaf in the green. I cut round the baubles and adhered them to the inside of the front so that they hang in the aperture.

Not much else to say about this but I hope you like it, x

Here's the challenge link:-


  1. Hi Alison, You really don't need to say much because it's immediately apparent to everyone that you've created a beautiful and eyecatching card for our challenge. A great idea to have your baubles hanging in the aperture. Thank you for your kind message and for sharing your card with us at Bah! Humbug!
