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.

Tilda by Candlelight

Hello Bloggers, hope you're all well and enjoying a little bit of sunshine. Its so much more pleasant out now that the wind has moved away.

I'm sorry but I don't have the list of copic colours I used on this little cutie as its one I coloured a while ago. However, I can tell you that I have layered her on DP from Basic Grey Jovial stack. Beautiful rich deep colours and I was chuffed to bits to be able to blend in a ribbon and use my new bow maker.

The little date stamp is by LOTV, a Harrogate purchase.

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

Just Magnolia #23 - Sketch
Totally Papercrafts #83 - Cute with Buttons
Pile It On #37 - Layer It
