- 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.

Good Evening Peeps. Hope you're all well. Its been another miserable day here in West Yorkshire, foggy, grey and generally dull and dark. That's the 3rd day in a row. I do hope we get a little sunshine soon.
Anyhow, here's the first of 2 postings this evening before I go away for the weekend. After many attempts to create this shaped card without losing the hinge, lol, I finally succeeded. I've used the Go Kreate Frilly #6 large and medium dies, also a nestabilitie scalloped circle.
The cute image is by those folks at LOTV which I've coloured with copics:-
E00, 21, 93, 31, 33, 35, B00, 02, RV000, 02, 34, YG03, 06, 09, Y000, 11, 13, 17.
One of the challenges I'm entering it for is CES #60 - inspired by a song and as soon as I saw this image I thought of 'Artificial Flowers' by The Beautiful South, one of my all time favourites.
The DP is Fairy Flora by Prima, and here is a piccie of the inside using more of that fabby paper.
