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 World is Full of Magic

Good Morning Peeps. What's happened to the sun??? It was due to be warm and sunny today but instead its dull and cloudy :(((

Anyhow, here's my card for today. I've had Tilda coloured with copics for a while, sitting on my desk waiting patiently for me to stick her on a card, lol.

The DP are by Websters 'Waiting for Santa & Sweet Season', which are available at Crafty Emma's Store. Now the diecut scalloped circle sitting behind is actually some kitchen towel coloured with acrylic paint and then sprayed with Glimmer Mist. At least I think that's how I've done it. It was a while ago now and I'd forgotten I had it until it 'jumped' onto my table and declared that Tilda wanted it on the card, lol. Whatever, the reason, it's allowed me to only use 2 DP so that I can enter the card in the current One Stop Craft Challenge.

The sentiment is by LOTV and the ribbon from my stash.

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

Papertake Weekly - Sketch
One Stop Craft #141 - Recipe: 1 ribbon, 2 DP, 3 buttons
Crafty Sentiments Designs - Polka Dots
