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.

Merry Christmas

Evening Peeps, this will have to be a quickie tonight as I've been trying to upload this card for the past 45 minutes and now my bed is calling. Not sure what's wrong with my PC at the moment but its taking forever to do anything.

Anyway, I've used the current Less Is More Challenge for this card, simply stamping the Poinsettia image, colouring with copics and then mounting onto black CS. Then finished off with the sentiment.

Hope you like it and here are the links, x

  1. That's a lovely flower and I love sentiment backgrounds.
    Thanks so much Alison

  2. Lovely LIM card - just perfect for the challenge. My computer is running slow too but I think mine needs a new battery - just need to get himself motivated to find me one as I haven't a clue what to look for (or where it goes even).
    Remind me to tell you what the man in the PO told me about computers when I see you tomorrow.
    Hugs, Neet x
