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.

The Sugar Bowl #55 and Cute Card Thursday #155

Evening Peeps. By the time I'd finished these next 2 cards for uploading last night it was time for bed and then today the PC has been on a go slow :(((

Anyhow, this is the first one I want to show you. Another image I coloured during our weekend away. It's a Sugar Nellie image 'sitting with bear', isn't she cute. I've used copics to colour:-
skin - E21, 93, Promarker Satin
hair - E31. 33. 35
teddy - E31, 33
trousers - BG10, 13
top - RV23, 25
stool - E33, 35

The DP are MME 'pretty please' spring papers

I'm entering it into the following challenges:-

The Sugar Bowl #55 - sketch with optional extra of Spring
Cute Card Thursday #155 - card for a 3 year old
I hope you like it, x
