- 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.

Frosty The Snowman (and his little secret)
Evening Peeps. Hope you're all well and keeping warm. Autumn is definitely here. The air is crisp, the sun is bright, and the leaves are a multitude of colours. So that's why I'm showing you a Christmas Card, lol.
I coloured this Molly Blooms image in the last time we were in our caravan and I'm afraid I can't find the details of the copics I used. However, I can tell you that the DP is 'Jovial' by Basic Grey, and the wee sentiment is by Polka Doodles.
The border die has been punched and embossed and then pearls, from The Hobby House, added. The snowflake bellies have gems added and I've stickled the snowballs and the fluffy bits to his attire. The snowflake charm is from Crafty Emma's Store. I wonder whether Emma and Steve have had their baby yet???
I'd like to enter it into the following challenges but before I do let me tell you I have it on good authority that Frosty visited a tattoo parlour before he got wrapped up for winter.....
