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.

Autumn Mums

Phew! At last I can upload a card. Between work and the PC playing silly beggars I've had great difficulty getting on my blog. Anyhow here I am with this week's freebie image from the Designed 2 Delight team. I was also able to use my latest challenge win, some DP from a 'My Minds Eye' stack called 'Six by Six' kindly donated by Crafty Emma's Store. Lovely colours for this time of year too. Although having said that, have you seen the weather today??? What's going on??? It has been blooming gorgeous here in West Yorkshire and so hot too, luverly.

I've used copics to colour the image and I've threaded ribbon through the lace to join 2 pieces together. The sketch is from the current Sketch Saturday challenge.

I hope you like it and before I go off to catch up on some of my blogging pals here are the links for the challenges:-
