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 watering can full of blooms

Evening Peeps. Well, its been another one of those evenings. I think my computer sees the word 'blog' and goes into meltdown. Anyhow, I'm up and running again now and here is this evening's offering.

This beautiful digi image is by the Designed 2 Delight people and it could be really versatile depending on the colours you use. I've used my old faithful, copics, although I didn't keep a record of the colours duh!

The DP is by Prima 'Fairy Flora' which I got from Crafty Emma's Store, and the curly gardenia is from here too.

The adhesive pearls are from The Hobby House.

I hope you like it and I'd like to enter it into the following challenges:-
