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.

Always and Forever

The final one for today peeps. I was going to leave it until tomorrow to share with you but usually in my case something else crops up, best laid plans and all that....

I coloured Tilda and her bench with copics and felt sure I had kept a note somewhere of the colours but could I find it, could I heck, lol. Anyhow, I went for a change with the brown to blend in with the fabbie DP  'Mistletoe' by Memory Box, available from Crafty Emma's Store.

The ribbon is from my stash as are the red circle embellishments. According to the current CRAFT sketch the sentiment should be at the top, however I felt it suited the design of my card better at the bottom. I'll just have to take a chance on that being acceptable.

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

CRAFT #118 - Sketch
Just Magnolia - Monthly Special - Anything Goes +/- Circles
Winter Wonderland - Special Friend or Someone Special


  1. So cute! I love your interpretation of the CRAFT sketch, and yes it's perfectly acceptable :)

  2. Gorgeous creation thank you for creating a card for your special friend, and sharing it with us at the Winter Wonderland
    Hugs Kate xx
