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.

The Pixie Cottage #77

Happy Sunday Peeps. Hope you're all having a good weekend and getting some sunshine. Its currently overcast here in West Yorkshire.

Just a quick upload today in an attempt to get back into the challenges. This little offering is for the current Pixie Cottage sketch challenge. I really love these new DP  by Websters which I got from Crafty Emma's Store and loved the way I was able to match the colours with my copics on Tilda's dress. The ribbon, also from Crafty Emma, is by MME.

I hope you like it and the challenge link is below, x
