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.

Let Them Eat Cake
It's my oldest and dearest friend's birthday today. It has given me the opportunity to use this lovely House-Mouse stamp.
I used my Flexmarkers and Promarkers to colour the stamp and I added some Glossy Accents to the candle. I went over the pink frosting with a clear Wink of Stella pen to give it a lovely sparkly effect. The matching papers and sentiment came from the House-Mouse Inserts CD and the contrast paper from a Docraft DC.
The large butterfly die is a Marianne Creatable and the gorgeous flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I am entering this card in the following challenges
