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.

Ladybird, Ladybird, fly away home...

Evening Peeps. I hope you've all had a good weekend with plenty of sunshine. Hasn't today been glorious. I managed to fit in a riding lesson (been a very poor attender since Christmas) and also loads of gardening. End result...can hardly move as my back is killing. Undone the effects of the massage yesterday. Hey! Ho!

Believe it or not this card is for my hubby. Its our Wedding Anniversary tomorrow and as per usual I left it until the last minute to make his card and then couldn't think of what to do. However, I've teamed it with one of my own little verses inside which reads - 'Sometimes you can bug me, but I still love you loads'. I'll give you all a minute to finish with your buckets before I continue, lol.

The image is by Digital Delights and I've coloured it with copics: 100, C5, 8, R24, 27, 29, E00, 21, 93. I've also added some glossy accents to the toes of her shoes.

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