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.

This cute little guy comes from Teddy Bo & Co and is called Olifant Love.
I coloured him with a combination of FlexMarkers and Promarkers, I wanted to achieve a light, washed-out effect for him and the heart, but to cap (no pun intended) this with stronger colours in his hat.
I have been looking for a good excuse to use my new lace from Wild Orchid Crafts but have struggled to get the look right (this is the first card where I have been happy with the lace). The heart paper is from DoveCraft.
I have decided to enter this card into the follow challenge:
