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.

Jolly's Heart is for You

Another Valentine card and another Teddy Bo & Co image.

I cannot decide whether little Olifant or Jolly the Giraffe is my favourite, I adore them both and their friends Teddy Bo and Bea, as regular visitors to my blog will know.

I coloured Jolly with Promarkers and added some sweet little pink brads with hearts on.  The fab polka dot paper is from a Polka Doodle CD.

I have decided to enter this card in the following challenge.

The Squirrel and the Fox - #11 Valentine's Day
Dream Valley Challenges - #25 Valentine



  1. Gorgeous card,Dee. It is a really hard decision to pick which would be a favourite. But both are adorable, that's for sure.
