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.

Good Luck in Your New Home

Good morning

It's been a while since I last made a stepper card and this one was so much fun to make.

The image is from Hope Jacare Doodles over at Stitchybear Digital Stamps.   I coloured it with Promarkers and mounted it on gold mirri card.

The large butterflies die is a Marianne Designs Creatable die and the smaller one is a Memory Box die and I added some bling with some flat backed gems.  The birdhouse and bunting paper is from a Papermania stack.

I really enjoyed making cards for the current Crafty Boots Challenge, I hope you have as much fun making yours.



  1. Hi Dionne
    Stunning stepper card! I love anything with mushrooms and will have to make a note of this digi. It is super cute and would come handy one day when I decide to go for a mushroom theme.
