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.

Home is Where the Heart is

When I saw what fellow Crafty Boots Design Team Member Zoe had done with this Hope Jacare Doodle image I knew it was the perfect card for a friend of mine who had recently moved home.  I loved the monochrome treatment she had given the image.

My apologies to Zoe for plagiarising her concept.

I printed this image three times and coloured it with my Promarkers, using the browns and skin tones and I added a little sparkle on the hearts with my Wink of Stella pens.  The only splash of colour is the red front door.

I cut around the houses and decoupaged the image to give it some dimension and mounted the whole thing on gold and brown pearlised card.  Finally I placed the whole thing on some gold glitter board and added some ribbon and a couple of brads.
