- 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.

Off to School
Morning folks, are you ready for the start of 4, yes 4, postings from me this morning. I'm going MIA later for a weekend in the caravan so I'm filling you up with eye candy before I go, lol.
This card I've made for our little grandee who will be starting school in September. Now you may ask yourself (or you may not) why a pink greeting on a predominantly blue card. Well! She has this bee in her bonnet that if something is blue then its for a boy!!! You may be able to spot the pink pencil in her satchel.
The image is by LOTV, and the little fencing is a Polka Doodles stamp, repeated, from their Pond Neighbours range. I've only just bought a couple of their ranges thanks to my friend and purse emptier, Diane of Inky Meanderings, lol. The DP is Prima 'Sweet Fairy' available from Crafty Emma's Store.
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:-
Sketch and Stash #68 - Sketch and using ribbon and sentiment from my stash
Polka Doodles #32 - Good Luck
