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.

Happy Birthday Don


It is my very dear friend Don's birthday today, I hope he is having a terrific day.

This adorable stamp is from Lili of the Valley and it is called Sailing Boat.

I coloured the stamp with Promarkers and added some Glossy Accents to the keel.  I mounted the image on silver mirri card and secured it with some red brads with white polka dots.

The paper are from the Joanna Sheen CD Messy Rabbit and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.  The yacht charm and polka dot ribbon were from my stash.
