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.

Juicy Plums

Another very quick upload and card before I retire to bed. A work colleague of my hubby's has very kindly given us 2 large loads of plums from her garden and so hubby asked if I'd make her a thank you card. Of course you never have the right image at the right time!!! A quick google search and I found this fab image courtesy of wallpaperstock.net. I've layered it up on the fabbie Webster Pages DP and hand-written Plum Crumble on the 'specials board', as that is what we have been making with them.

The flowers are from my latest delivery from Crafty Emma's Store and the leaves are from a Martha Stewart punch.

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