Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.

I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

The Fisherman

Needed a very quick male card.  

The image and backing paper for this card came from the new Forever Friends Retro CDs.  I mounted the image on some silver holographic card  as well as some light blue pearlised card.  The card was finished with a few Craftwork Cards Card Candi and a silver sentiment.


  1. Thank you Crafty Boots, I was not going to add this one but a friend changed my mind.

  2. Great card, love Forever friends. Can't go wrong with one of their images I reckon. Zo x

  3. Many thanks Zo. Whenever I need a quick card I reach for these CDs. I suspect the new From Me to You CDs will be the same. Dx
