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.

Be My Valentine
It's time for another challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges, for the next two weeks it is all about St Valentine's Day.
I have chosen a Teddy Bo Design called Love Showers.
I coloured this image with Promarkers and the roses came from Wild Orchid Crafts. The card and papers came from my stash.
I interspersed the roses with small pearl headed pins.
When I visited the Teddy Bo store, to find an image suitable for this challenge, I had trouble deciding on my favourite and ended up buying several ..... as you do.
After colouring this one with Promarkers I added some Glossy Accents to all the places I thought the paint would be wet (this is something I had seen Hazel at Just Add Glitter do and I wanted to try it for myself). I then added a sentiment. a few buttons and a bow to complete.
Why not pop over to the Crafty Boots Challenge blog and see all the fabulous cards the other Design Team Members have made.
