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.

Baby Girl

Good morning fellow bloggers.

I hope that your week is going well, I have to say that I have been having a particularly fine time at the moment.  The past couple of days I have been happily crafting.

The current Crafty Boots Challenges theme is babies, there are so many wonderful baby stamps around, I just had to play with one or two of them.

This image from Mo's Digital Pencil is called Babygirl S, isn't she a little cutie?

I was inspired to get my punches out by my friend Michaela.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and punched around the page using Martha Stewart punches.

The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the pearls, ribbon and papers are from my stash.


I am entering this card in the following challenges:

'Baby or Birthday Challenge - Fashionista Challenge
