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.

A Pink Tea Party

Before I get onto the card I just want to say I may be quiet for a couple of days as my little grand-daughter and her Daddy are coming to stay.

A really quick and easy card made using a Crafty Individuals stamp which I got as part of my win from the Craft Barn Calendar Challenge a few weeks ago.

I've used DP 'Sweet Fairy' by Prima, and lace and pearls from my stash.

This card was sent as part of a Think Pink Challenge Swap.

I'd like to enter it into the following challenge:-

Lets Ink It Up #16 - Think Pink
