- 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.

The Craft Barn Calendar - March
Good Morning Everyone. Its another glorious day here in West Yorkshire. I just hope it continues for my trip South next weekend when I am staying with my oldest and dearest friend near Hastings.
Before I get onto telling you about my March Calendar I just want to share with you the fact that I won the £10 voucher for last week's entry. I was so chuffed but I can see I'm going to be spoilt for choice in the Craft Barn shop.
So, this is my March page for The Craft Barn Calendar challenge week 3. The remit this time was to use green and flowers. I'm doing a month a week and then binding all my pages together with my Bind-It-All.
For this page I've used a background stamp by Personal Impressions inked with Adirondack Lettuce and then overstamped a La Blanche floral image with Memento black and coloured with copics. The fabby leafy ribbon was some I picked up at Harrogate and I've overlaid it with a narrow pink ribbon.
I hope you like it and here's the link:-
