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.

You're an Angel

Here's my second post for the evening. This digi image is Angel Caroline by Designed 2 Delight. Isn't she cute. I've used my copics to colour:
skin - E21, 93, promarker satin
hair - E50, 51, 53, 31
clothes and wings - G000, 00, 02, 03

The DP is by Prima 'Fairy Flora' from Crafty Emma's Store.

The little flowers I have had for an absolute age, I think they were probably once part of a larger flower that I dissected, lol. Can't remember where the sentiment is from, but rather appropriate for this card.

I hope you like it and I'm entering it into the following challenges:-

Corrosive #107 - sketch
Allsorts #94 - Luck of the Irish or green
