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.

Aye Aye Captain!


How was your weekend?  It has been pretty wet here and it looks like we are about to have another shower.

I have another Mo Manning image to share with you today.  I actually purchased this image from Mo's Digital Pencil for the Crafty Boots Nautical Challenge.  However, at the time, I never got around to turning it into a card.

I coloured Captain Hugh with Promarkers and Fleximarkers and cut it out with Nesties. The herring gull background paper is from a Faye Whittaker CD and the anchor charm is from Cards and Craft.

Have a great week.



  1. AHOY Dionne
    Beautiful card! Loving the image and the way you coloured it. Also admiring all the other elements you used, that backing paper goes so well with the whole design and the rest of embellies too. It has been raining here as well today. Apart from bad weather I hope your bank holiday Monday is OK.
