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.

Another Day, Another Piece of Clingfilm

Afternoon folks. Thought I'd share some cards with you which I made pre clingfilm days.....

The top one was a combination of resist and spotlight, the middle one some more resist with Stazon overstamping. Both for crafty girly birthdays.

This bottom one was for another very talented crafty lady, this time in an easel format. The upright image is part of a collection of square postcards from IKEA. Not sure if they still sell them but they are so adaptable.
Well, the clingfilm was out again today. A neighbour had offered to take us to a local mobility place to pick up a hire wheelchair with leg-rest and hubby thought it would be a good idea for me to go out for the ride. So we started our morning routine early so that the bath and of course clingfilm ritual could be performed. We're getting good at this now and hubby is even multi-tasking.....dropping soap in bath and knocking poorly leg at the same time!!!

So we are now the proud foster parents of a wheel-chair which we have tried out quite successfully, but more of that tomorrow. After all I don't want to use up all my tales in one blog outing.

So until tomorrow, TTFN, x


  1. Sorry to hear about your op, Alison. I guess you'll just have to take it easy and let Dave do everything. :o)

    Fabulous cards. Love the colours of the second one.

  2. A lovely collection of cards.
    xxx Hazel.

  3. Well, I have heard of some things but never of foster parents of a wheel chair. That's novel!
    Lovely cards you have made - must have a trip to Ikea when I visit Warrington next.
    Take care and good luck with that leg.
    Hugs, Neet xx
