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 latest challenge is 'New Beginnings', a perfect theme for this time of year when we are all thinking about the new year. However, this challenge is not limited to the new year, it could also apply to weddings, engagements, births and new home. So get your thinking caps on to see what you can come up with.
I decided to design a birth announcement card. The image and background paper came from my favourite Forever Friends CD. I cut the image out with my Nesties and added a sentiment, some ribbon and a few flat backed gems to finish it off.
Just in case it is a girl, I did another card.
Don't forget to pop across to the Crafty Boots Challenges site to check out the fabulous creations made by the rest of the very talented Design Team.
