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.

Cleaning Up!

Good morning

These Teddy Bo & Co spring cleaning images are a great deal of fun but I am not sure under what circumstances you would send a card about cleaning up to anyone.  However, I might be temped to send this image, which is called Cleaner Bo, to my husband if he ever gets around to cleaning the car!

I coloured the image with Promarkers, then I mounted it on some silver mirri and some black card.  I added a little Glossy Accents to the bucket and polish tin to give them a shiny finish.  The paper is from a Forever Friends stack.  The glittery organza ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment from Craftwork Cards.

There is still plenty of time for you to enter the current challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges, which is all about Home.

  1. Hi Dionne
    Beautiful card! The image is brilliant. Probably not suitable for that many occasions but as a gentle reminder to do some well over due cleaning I think works well. Better than nagging which does not seem to work half of the time. (LOL)Or someone getting a job as a cleaner would suit as well. Or someone who needs to clean up their act (LOL) but I do not think that would go down as well.
