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.

I have another baby card to share with you this morning.

As you probably know, the current Crafty Boots Challenges theme is babies.

This is another image from Mo's Digital Pencil, it is called Christening.

(Apologies for the flare of the flash in this photo!)

I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it on gold mirri card and some glitter card to give it some extra sparkle.  The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the paper is from my favourite DoveCraft stack.  The sentiment is from Kanban.

There is still time for you to enter this Crafty Boots Challenge, but don't take too long!

If you would like to see the other cards I have made for this challenge they are:
