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.

Craft Barn Calendar Week 12 - December

Good Evening everyone. So sorry I've not been on here a lot lately but its just busy, busy, busy here in West Yorkshire. Also I must apologise for not visiting your blogs recently but that will be rectified asap.

Anyhows, here is the last instalment in the Craft Barn Calendar Challenge and this time it was to use red and green, pine trees and sparkle.

I've stamped the polka doodles trees onto DP and then cut them out. I've added copper stickles to the trunks and some adhesive stars to the top left corner for the sparkle bit.

Here comes the challenge link and pop back to my next posting to see how I've connected the pages together, x


  1. A super December page. Love those little dotty trees. xx

  2. Your last page is so pretty!I love the small paterns you have used...gorgeous! TFS!

  3. The patterned paper made me think of trees in a snow storm. Great page. Hugs Mrs A.
