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.

It's a Kind of Magic!

The weekend is here at last, whoo hoo!

I have a very quick card to share with you this morning.  I have recently been sharing with you the LOTV stamps I bought Ali Pali and this is another sweetie, the stamp is called Abracadabra!.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it on silver mirri and paper, glitter card from my stash.  The butterfly dies are from Memory Box and the flourish is a Marianne Creatable die called Garden Branch.  I added a few flat backed gems to form the bodies of the butterflies.

Whatever you are doing this weekend, have a great time.
