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.

Wishing You a Magical Birthday

Good Evening Peeps. Hope you are all having a good weekend and enjoying some sunshine. It was a lovely autumnal day here, a little chilly but plenty of sunshine.

Anyway, I'm back with a card for you. This time its for our little Scottish Grand-daughter who will be 3 at the end of the month. I just love these Sugar Nellie digi images, this one's called Nancy. So cute with her teddy. I've followed The Sugar Bowl sketch although rotated it to fit the image. I've also used their optional challenge of green although the piccie is deceptive with those background papers. The sentiment is by LOTV.

I coloured Nancy with copics as follows:
skin - E00, 21, 93
hair - E31, 33, 35
teddy - E41, 43, 93
remainder - Y02, 06, 08

The current Papertake Weekly challenge is to use 3 different shapes. I think I managed that with a rectangle, diamond/square and circle.

I hope you like it. Here are the challenge links I'd like to enter it into:-

The Sugar Bowl #69 - Sketch
Sentimental Sundays #76 - Anything Goes
