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.

Some cards at last.....

 I heard last weekend when I was away that one of my crafting 'Sisters' and her family are going through a rough time at the moment and set about, with my Perth Pal's crafting persuasion, to make some cards. I'm not sure if my MoJo has returned but I enjoyed making the cards and hope they've cheered some lovely ladies up.

Finally, here's a photo of my car this morning having already been cleared of snow yesterday!!! I couldn't even get it back up our drive yesterday when I got home, although I guess I was lucky to get it home at all, seeing as we live on top of a hill.

Anyway, hubby has done a sterling job of digging an escape route so now we are going to give it a try and see if we can get over to pick our grandee up for the weekend.

I may be sometime, but if we make it home there's the promise of a snowman family.

Watch this space, x


  1. Oh my look at that snow, it is Spring isn't it? Love the cards if you have lost your mojo and you are making those then I'd love to see you with your mojo.
    Have a great weekend,

  2. Beautiful cards! That's some snow you got! We've had some in Ireland too but nothing stuck thankfully. It is bitterly cold though, where did Spring go?

  3. They're lovely cards, too! Hope you made it home, safely. Same here - was expecting rain a little while ago, not more snow but that's what we have.. enjoy your little one x

  4. Lovely cards Alison and I hope you managed to pick up your grandchild.

  5. Two delightful cards, hope they inspired you to get back to card making???? Do love the top one, it really did make me smile.
    OOps re the snow!
    Hugs, Neet xx
