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.

Blooming Marvellous

Good Morning Bloggers. Sorry I've been MIA for longer than expected but stuff got in the way. Anyway, had a fab weekend in our caravan, really relaxing which was partly because I knew we weren't far from Mum should we be needed. Managed to take in the last Harry Potter movie and also a wander around Bury's famous market.

My card this morning is made using the current Designed 2 Delight freebie image. Easy peasy to colour with copics. I can see me using this image a lot for quickie cards. I've teamed it with DP by  Basic Grey 'Hello Luscious'. I've also added small buttons to the centres of 3 of the flowers.

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

Delightful Inspirations - D2D Image
Delightful Inspirations Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes
Digi Doodles Best #72 - Recipe (1 ribbon, 2 papers, 3 buttons)
One Stop #145 - Bold and Bright
