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.

Christmas in July

Evening Peeps. Did anyone else get that terrific downpour earlier this evening. Whoosh! It absolutely fell down here and my poor lad was cycling up the road (well pavement) and came in like a drowned rat...

Anyway, down to business. I've used a Molly Bloom image this time, coloured of course with my copics. The DP are Websters 'Waiting for Santa' and I thought Molly with her lantern was just right for showing Santa the way to the wee house. I've turned the Cute Card Thursday sketch on its head and threaded the ribbon behind the house so as not to spoil the fantastic detail on this DP. BTW, the ribbon is by MME, available at Crafty Emma's Store (as is the DP),  who has some Candy to giveaway. See my side bar....

I hope you like it and the challenge links are below, x

  2. Love that little house, Alison - did you do that? It's a great idea. Lovely card but I can't believe you're using the C word already!!!

  3. Molly looks even cuter now that she's on a card, Alison!
