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.

Simple Stencilling

 Good Afternoon Folks. Not such a sunny day here today, in fact not sunny at all, just dull!

This is a card I made for a very special tea lady who had a birthday yesterday. This was one of the few I was putting together quickly before I went into hospital, so I used up an image I'd created from a stencil with dreamweavers paste and added a bit of bling....voila!

I hope she liked it and enjoyed her birthday.

Well, I survived yesterday OK. One little fall but fortunately landed on the sofa so no harm done.

This morning it was back to the clingfilm and then off to see the nurse to have my dressings removed. Mmm...still one hole not quite healed, hopefully it will do soon. Then off to the supermarket to stock up on food and a little treat - a bottle of wine. However, all was not to be....as we got out of the taxi at home hubby dropped the bag containing the wine.......the pavement smells good, lol.

So with not much else to report today I shall leave you to your crafting and I'll see you soon, x

  1. Oh no, (wine) - what a shame! Love the card and thanks for the reminder about stencilling paste - now I might make a start on "C" cards.
    Take care.
    Hugs, Neet xx
