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.

A Daughter's Wedding Day

This is the second card for this evening and then I'm off to bed.

I've made this card for the parents of the bride to send congratulations on their daughter's wedding. I started making cards in this vein a few years ago for parents of children on their wedding days and find they are always much appreciated.

This is a silhouette stamp by Kaycee which I've had a while and is so versatile. I've used it for many different types of cards. I've edged the white layer and the flowers in her hair with copic B60. The white flowers with pearls are from Crafty Emma's Store.

The dies are by Go Kreate available from Samuel Taylor.

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

Charisma Cardz #14 - Wedding or Anniversary
