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 Garden Party

Evening Peeps, hope you've all had a good day. At least we've broken the back of the week now and it'll soon be the weekend.

My card this evening is made using the current Designed2Delight image 'Garden Party'. If you're into digital images and like a challenge this is worth following. Its a progressive challenge which if you enter enables you to get a free digi image to play along again the following week. Check out the link below for more details.

I've used copics to colour:-
G03, 07, Y11, 13, 17, C3, R00, 20, 37, RV34, E11, 15, 18

The DP is from a large scrapbooking pack from Costco. The flower ribbon is from Meiflower and the brads etc are from my stash.

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

Allsorts #98 - Anything but square
Dream Valley #4 - Things with wings
Designed2Delight - Garden Party image
