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.

Cards to Share

Hello from a very warm and sunny West Yorkshire. It was quite dull this morning but its just got warmer and warmer as the day's progressed.

This first card I made for a crafting friend who had a birthday yesterday. I fell in love with this stamp where I saw it and was able to co-ordinate it with some Craft Individuals DP and flowers.

The next 3 piccies show different aspects of a recent bookmark card which I made with instructions from the very talented Diane Whitehouse. It was for a teenage girl who loved it.

Close-up of the bookmark.

Hope you like my brief return into card-making which may be on hold again for a while due to home circumstances.

Enjoy the sun if you have it. Hopefully it will last, x
