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.

Witch Hazel


I am afraid I am rather late posting today, it has taken me ages to load these photos onto my blog.

Yesterday I mentioned that I have recently thinking a lot about appropriate colours and I have been experimenting with a couple Halloween images.  This time I have been using a really sweet Sylvia Zet image called Hazel and I have experimented with a number of colour schemes.

After colouring them with my Promarkers I gave each image a double mount.  In keeping with the current Crafty Boots Challenge Three, I added three Craftwork Card Candi to each and a bow using three different coloured ribbons.

I suppose I did get a little carried away with all these cards, especially when you consider that I do not actually send Halloween cards, but there was a little bit of me that wanted to use some more of these gorgeous free papers from Bearly Mine

I hope you have a fabulous weekend.



  1. Hi Dionne
    You really surprise me. So many brilliant cards again. Love the image,the papers and your experimenting with colours. I do not send any halloween cards but can't help to make at least one as well. In my case it is a cute image I downloaded which is crying out to be used.

  2. I love all these different colour options - I wouldn't be able to choose if I had to pick just one. Not only is the colouring fab (love that image) but the background papers you have chosen for each colour work really well. They would be beautiful party invitations.x

  3. Hi Dionne
    Thank you for your lovely comment you left for me yesterday. Also thank you for asking about how I am. Not well at all at the moment but still surviving somehow. Thank you for the alert about the Charmed on ITV3. It's going to be lovely to watch it again from the beginning. I used to watch it on Living TV.
    Hope you are well and having a nice weekend.
