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.

Feline Hocus Pocus

Evening All. Brrrr, its been a chilly ole day here in West Yorkshire with loadsa rain too :(( I hope its been a little brighter for some of you.

My card this evening is made using the current free image from the Designed 2 Delight people 'Falloween Cat'. I wouldn't normally make Halloween cards but I set myself this one target every week to use the image set by this challenge blog. That way you earn yourself another freebie for the following week. Check out the link below to see what I'm on about.

I used very few copics to colour : C3, 5, 7, YG63, 67, YR04, 07, BV08 and the card and ribbons were from my stash. The brads and flowers were also from my stash. Note to self.....must stock up at Harrogate this weekend, lol.

BTW, the sentiment was also part of the freebie image.

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

Designed 2 Delight - Falloween Cat Image and Sentiment
Paper Sundaes #85 - Sketch
Delightful Challenge - Halloween
