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.

Poorly Hedgehog

Evening Peeps. I hope you're all having a good weekend so far.

Unfortunately I had to work this morning, but that's never too bad when the sun is shining. However, I was then able to relax with a fab massage this afternoon. I don't find the time often enough but when I do it is such a pleasure and she managed to ease my back pain which was a bonus.

Anyhow, I just want to share this little card with you before I go for a hot soak and then cuddle up with hubby to watch a late film, assuming neither of us falls asleep, lol.

This fab image is by Elizabeth O Dulemba. She creates some fantastic piccies and they are a joy to colour with my copics. For this one I've used: C2, 3, 5, R35, 37, YG03, 63, E04, 31, 33, 37, 51, 93.

The DP is MME 'Wild Asparagus', the flowers are from The Hobby House.

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

The Pixie Cottage #65 - sketch
Cupcake Challenge #137 - Doctors and Nurses
A Spoonfull of Sugar #147 - All Creatures Great and Small
Fab n Funky #68 - Spotty and Dotty
