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.

Wishing You Every Happiness

The other day I mentioned that two couples I know had recently got engaged, here is the other card I made.

I used my favourite Teddy Bo images for this card and. if I do say so myself, I think this is probably the best card I have ever made.

I coloured the image, which is called Love Showers, with my Promarkers and cut the shapes with my Nesties. The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the paper from DoveCraft.

I interspersed the roses with small pearl headed pins.

Keiron and Stephanie-Emma are two very special people and I wish them every happiness.

I have decided to enter this card into the following challenges:
