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.

Blooming Marvellous

Good Afternoon All. Hope you're all well and enjoying some dry weather. I won't say warm cos its not very...

Just a quick post for now to show you this card which I am entering into the current Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge and also the Delightful Inspiration Challenge. The latter is a progressive challenge enabling you to increase your digital image library. If you want to know what I'm on about click on the challenge link below.

I used DP 'A hint of Pink' by Dovecraft for my layers which were matted onto black CS. The image I've coloured with copics, easy peasy and used another sheet of the DP which I've edged with my MS round the edges punches. Then some black and pink brads to finish it off.

I must apologise for the poor piccie, I think my camera must be on the wrong setting. Off to rectify it.

Hope you like it, x
