- cockney blonde
- 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.

Good Morning All. Have to make this a really quick one as I'm about to drop Son #2 off for a trip. I've used Blonde Moments DP here and to create a frame (as per the current Allsorts Challenge) I adhered the bauble sheet to some card and then cut out the aperture. This was to give it some strength for when I added the 3d pads to the back. Hopefully the bottom picture will give you an idea although the piccie's not brill.
The cute image is by Mollie Blooms which I've coloured with copics. I cut off the lantern and re-fixed it to the edge of the frame. I also cut off the hanging mitten, restuck and drew in the thread.
The CES challenge this week is for banners, bunting or flags. I'm not sure if my interpretation will count but I'll enter it anyway. I've cut some baubles from the DP, added a couple of gold bells and a grunge board bauble coloured with dabbers and voila!
Hope you like it, x
