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.

Just a quickie

Afternoon Bloggers. What a chilly miserable day it is here. Where is our summer??? I want to know NOW!!!

So now I've stamped my feet  foot I'll share with you this quickie card (pre-leg again) that I made for a lovely lady who had a birthday yesterday. Again a stencil with dreamweavers paste, a bit of bling, and a Martha Stewart butterfly punch.

Hope she liked it.

As for the leg. Well thankfully its not a DVT so our trip to China in 3 months should still be OK.

Back tomorrow with a fabby quick bag I knitted up at the hospital yesterday.



  1. So glad it's not a DVT... I forgot about your China trip, so that was lucky it's OK for you to fly.
    Take care of your remaining foot now and don't be stamping it too much.

  2. H'mm, haven't used my stencil paste for years - think I used plaster last time, he, he - more or less same thing, anyway. I like the way this turned out. We had summer last week, love - sad, but probably true. We've just put the heating on to take off the chill! Hope all goes well tomorrow x

  3. Thanks for the reminder about the paste - now to crack on with 'C' cards. Yours is lovely and see how you have inspired me - maybe you have encouraged mr Mojo to come back.
    Hugs, Neet xx
