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.

Lighting The Way to Christmas

Good Evening Bloggers. Hope you're managing to keep warm with the dropping temperatures. Sorry I've been MIA for longer than expected but I have to put everything away from little fingers when our grand-daughter comes to stay and then it takes me 24 hours to face getting it all out again. Just to share a little snippet from some of her conversations, she told me that when she gets big she is going to have a pink car and she'll take me to the park when its raining but I will have to wait in the car!!! What's that all about, lol.

Anyway, back to this evening's card. A fabby Tilda coloured with copics:-
E00, 21, 93, E31, 33, 35, YG63, 67, R35, 37, E15, 18, YR00
which I've layered onto DP 'Jovial' by Basic Grey.

The roses and pearls are all from Crafty Emma's Store and I've added some crystal stickles for effect. Oh, and the little LOTV date stamp I've mounted onto a black button.

I hope you like it and I'd like to enter it into the following challenges:-

Sketch Saturday #178 - Sketch
