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.

Birthday Cards

 Evening Peeps. I can't promise regular blogs at the moment but I'll do what I can to keep in touch.

These images are from a couple of birthday cards I've made recently.

The top one is using a LOTV image and Basic Grey DP. The image coloured with copics, what else, lol.

 This is a variation on the Criss Cross technique using an Elizabeth Bell image, again coloured with copics.
I hope you like them both and I'll try and upload some more soon.

Spending tomorrow with my Mum again. She seems to be clinging to life but I know she is being well cared for at her Nursing Home which gives me peace of mind.

Bye for now, x


  1. Thoughts are with you and yours.
    Lovely cards - both of them - didn't know about the criss-cross card but now I know I have one done.
    Good to see you Saturday.
    Hugs, Neet

  2. I have also been away, off and on, Alison. I always enjoy your art, and am still laughing over some of the Steampunk. I will no doubt "steal" some of your ideas, when I do mine. The stamps are as yet uninked, but soon will be done.

    I love the images you are showing here. The little guy on the bike is cute.
    Hugs, Pat
