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.

Tea For Two

Good Evening Bloggers. I hope you've all had a good weekend.

Its taken me an hour to get this post together. Why is it when you have stuff to do the computer decides to play silly beggars??? So eventually, after re-booting it, I am here, yay!

I've used the really cute Lilli of the Valley image combined with Websters DP for this easel card. The gardenias are from Crafty Emma's Store and the ribbons from my stash. Also, in keeping with a couple of the challenges I want to enter I've used 2 sizes of a scalloped nestie and a Martha Stewart leaf punch.

The copics used for colouring the image are:
E00, 21, 93 (skin)
E31, 33, 35 (hair)
C1, 2, 3, R24, 27, 29, YG63, 67, Y21, 26, 28, B93, 95, 97 and promarker dusky rose.
I hope you like it and here come the challenge links, x
