- cockney blonde
- 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.

Wishing you a Swinging Christmas in September
Good Evening Bloggers. How are we all? I hope those who have been in certain parts of the UK haven't had too much trauma from the wild weather we are currently having. Obviously its nowhere near as bad as over in America but even so there have been a few incidents according to the news.
At last I have a card to show you. This little cutie was coloured up yesterday at our Samuel Taylors Monday Group under the scrutiny of the ever so talented Diane of Inky Meanderings Blog. I've used copics in the RV, YR and BG range but for the life of me can't find the post-it with the details on....duh!
The background of the card has been overstamped with a Crafty Individuals snowflake stamp in Adirondack Shell Pink (I think). The DP is a bargain stack I picked up at Harrogate by Dovecraft.
I hope you like it and here come the challenges I'd like to enter it into, x
