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.

Two More Easter Cards

Evening Peeps. Its been a long day today including a trip to the dentist, yuk! Fortunately nothing wrong so here's to the next 6 months, lol.

I've put together two more quickie Easter cards. The top one I inked and coloured this image last year and never got round to making a card with it. Sorry but I can't remember who makes the image and I didn't keep a note of the copics, duh! Anyhow, I love how the colours blend perfectly for this time of year. All I can tell you is that the DP is by K & Co, 'que sera sera'.

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

Moving Along With The Times #93 - sketch
Lets Ink It Up #12 - Easter
Simon Says - Spring colours or Easter
Stampin For The Weekend - Easter
This next card is also following the sketch from Moving Along With The Times but this time on an A5 card.

The image is by Digital Delights and I've used copics:
skin - E21, 93, promarker satin
hair - E31, 33, 35
clothes - YR02, 04, 07
egg - Y21, 26, 23

Again the DP is by K & Co 'que sera sera'.

I'm entering this one into the following challenges:-

Moving Along With The Times #93 - sketch
Ooh La La #77 - Easter

Goodnight and see you tomorrow, x
