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.

Snow Day II


Another Christmas card to share with you, you may be thinking that you have already seen this one.  I like to make my Christmas cards in pairs, so this is 'Snow Day' II, you may remember that this happy image is from Mo's Digital Pencil.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it on Stampin' Up card.  I then added some ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I also added glitter to the snowflakes, oh by the way, the snowflakes die is a sizzlits one, the sentiment is by Papermania and the bauble paper is from Dovecraft and the polka dot paper is from Polka Doodle CD.
