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.

The Craft Barn Calendar - February

Good Morning. I hope the sun is shining on you all like it is here in West Yorkshire at the moment.

Here is the post I mentioned last night before I had to go and get some shut eye. It's my February page for The Craft Barn 12 Week Calendar Challenge. This week it was to use red and embossing.

The CS is Bazzill which I have overstamped in Memento with a heart peg stamp by 'Judith' and the Hero Arts Hearts filament. The tree is also by 'Judith' which I have embossed in white and then added heart shape buttons.

I'm sorry but I'm not sure who makes the two text stamps but I've stamped in Stazon onto vellum, torn the edges and then fixed with gold brads.

Hope you like it, x
