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.

Fairy Peaceful

Morning Peeps. We have sunshine, yay! All on my own today. Hubby eventually got home from Hungary last night after a flight delay and has now gone off to Buntingford for a family reunion. Meanwhile I had to stay behind to drop younger son off for a trip to Manchester United's ground. So, once I've finished pootling (is that a word???) around here, I'm off to play with my pal Diane from Inky Meanderings.

Anyhows, here's the first of my uploads for today. This was my second attempt at the above card which was so easy peasy to do that I shall probably batch make some for Christmas. I've used a Lavinia Fairy in Stazon and then stamped the Clarity 'Peace' to snuggle it and embossed in purple. Edged the layer and the card edges with a copic purple pen and finished with 3 pearls from The Hobby House.

I'm entering it into the following challenges:-

Sentimental Sundays - Focus on the Sentiment
Winter Wonderland - Fairies or Angels
CRAFT #113 - Fairy Tales
Allsorts #114 - Free and Easy
Hope you like it and I'll be back in a mo with another upload, x
