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.

Candy Pip with Yellow Daisies

Good morning

I have a large pile of coloured images that haven't quite made it into cards, this was one of them.

I recently purchased these sunny yellow daisies from Wild Orchid Crafts and I remembered this image with its pretty yellow daisies, I think they go so well together.  I just had to make them into a card so I could share it with you.

The stamp is from the Sugar Nellie's Home Grown range and is callled Candy Sherbet Pip.  I coloured her with Promarkers and the paper is from a Polka Doodle CD.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

The whole range of Sherbet Pip stamps are a delight to colour and I think I shall have to get the rest of the range out again soon.



  1. It's gorgeous, I often forget about the little bits and bobs I've got. Glad you remembered these as they work a treat. Zo xx

  2. What a beautiful card , she is sooo cute and just love the way you have coloured her. The pink and yellow looks gorgeous together , and I will have to try this colour combo .
