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.

Welcome Little One

Hi, welcome to my blog.

There is a new challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges this morning, isn't it amazing how quickly this special Monday's come around? This week the title of the challenge is Babies, this theme was chosen by the very lovley Kerry.

There are so many gorgeous baby images available and I found it so hard to choose one, but I eventually went this this lovely Teddy Bo & Co stamp is called Rock a Bye Baby.

I enjoyed colouring this image so much I did it twice, once in pink and once in blue .... well not everyone knows the sex of their baby in advance and I like to be prepared.

I coloured the images with Promarkers and layered it with my Nesties using silver mirri card and glitter card. The papers and ribbon were from my stash.

Why not pop over to the Crafty Boots Challenges site and see the inspirational projects the other Design Team members have come up with and whilst you are there, don't forget to enter your own work into the challenge. I look forward to seeing your projects.

Thank you for visiting my blog today, any comments you leave are appreciated.
