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.

Friday's are for Resting with your leg up.....

Hello Bloggers. How are we all doing today? Have any of you managed to catch any sunshine yet? I don't just mean a smidgen here and there, as apparently summer is almost here....

Anyway some more cards to share with you, created pre-leg.

The top one was made utilising a stencil image I had filled with Dreamweavers paste. A ribbon here and there, a few gems and a flower, voila!

Next is another of my resist and spotlight cards. I do love those adirondack colours, cranberry and eggplant, together.

Finally a very quick resist card with a simple sentiment stamped on.

Tomorrow, all being well, we are hoping to pop up to my Son's Garden Centre for an Open Day and BBQ (I am whispering now in case the sun is listening). Not sure how they will manage with me in a wheelchair as the whole Centre is based on a steep hill. I may not be back in blogland til after the weekend so you will have to wait until that instalment.

Wishing you all a happy and hopefully sunny weekend, x


  1. Love the colours on your resist and spotlight card, very rich.
