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.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star...

Good Evening Peeps, hope you're all well.

I've been busy finishing off a challenge with a spindle so haven't had much time for cards this week. Of course that's on top of the 'hole' scenario. However, when I spotted a couple of CAS challenges I thought I'm sure I can do that PDQ and so I did.

I stamped the stars background (denami designs) with versamark direct to the card and then heated blue diamonds ep by CopperKate to get the glittery effect. The sentiment by LOTV was stamped with Memento black onto a spellbinders die. Finally I edged the frame and the card with a blue copic.

I think the total time was 5 minutes. Not bad...

Hope you like it and here come the challenge links:-
