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.

Poppies Part 2

As promised here is Part 2. There will be a Part 3 as the poppy is coloured and ready to go but it will become a bookmark and I'm not showing it until I know its been received. So you'll have to wait on that one.

I've used the same Penny Black image and copic colours as my previous post  http://cockneyblonde.blogspot.com/2011/09/poppies-part-1.html but this time matted onto black and added the 'Friends' sentiment by PSX.

I also decided to go for a DL card and punched the edge with a MS punch and added the ribbon, just because, lol.

I hope you like it and I'm entering it into the following challenges:-

Less Is More #33 - Anything Goes
Penny Black Saturday Challenge #169 - Friendship
