- 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.

A Black and White Christmas
Good Evening Peeps, although its nearly morning thanks to my ever slowing down PC...
At last I have a card to share with you and tomorrow I'll upload my next calendar page in the Craft Barn challenge.
For the card above I have used a PSX Christmas scene and a Crafty Individuals snowflake background stamp both inked with Stazon. I put the shiny black card through my Swiss Dots embossing folder. I've also added some stickles to represent snow on the rooftops etc.
The black flowers and the silver snowflake charm were from my stash.
The Merry Christmas sentiment is a piece cut from a ribbon, unfortunately it doesn't show up too well in the piccie.
I hope you like it and I'd like to enter it into the following challenges :-
