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.

Cupcake Mouse

Good Morning.The sun is shining here in West Yorkshire and I was up with the birdies so no doubt I'll be asleep by early afternoon, lol.

This cute little image is one of the freebies on offer over on the Designed 2 Delight site which has a progressive challenge each week. I've not managed to participate for a while but if you can it helps you build on your stash of digital images. Check out the link below to see what I'm talking about.

Anyhow, this little cutie is called Cupcake Mouse, isn't she sweet. I've used copics, no surprise there, to blend with the DP which is a double sided sheet from a Websters range 'Sweet Season'. I love these double-sided pages as you know you are gonna get a good blend, so I used my MS leaf punch with the reverse side of the paper to create the leaves.

I've turned the current Sketch Saturday sketch on its side and interpreted their 6 boxes by adding embellishments instead of papers. I hope that counts. Check out the link to see their sketch.

The cupcake brads are by Papermania, the rest is from my stash. The only thing I wasn't sure on was the tag.

Let me know what you think and the challenge links are below, x
