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.

Today it is Stephanie-Emma's birthday. Big, big whoop and breakout the bubbly and cake.
I wanted something special for her card and it took me ages to find the image I wanted. I love the House-Mouse range of stamps and this one seemed to say relax and enjoy your special day. This stamp is one of the Parasol stamps from the Summer Range.
I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it on silver mirri and sand coloured glitter card. The backing papers came from the Joanna Sheen House-Mouse CD.
Have a great day Stephanie-Emma, today is your day.
