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


Today was the last posting day in the UK for cards to reach people before Christmas Day and it was a massive relief to have eventually got all of my cards in the post.  I have never left it so late to make my cards, usually I make them in August but this year I just could not get motivated.

I have been in a panic for the past 10 days trying to make enough cards to send to my family and friends, I eventually made 96.  However, I have been so busy making then, I have not had time to share them with you - I think it may take a while to post them all........

This happy image is from Mo's Digital Pencil and it is called 'Snow Day'.

I always use Crafty Boots Deluxe Crafter's Card for my printing and stamping, I really cannot fault it, it is smooth, versatile and it takes a lot of punishment.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and added glitter to the snowflakes.

I mounted the image on Stampin' Up card and added ribbon from a recent Really Reasonable Ribbon delivery.  The snowflakes die is a sizzlits one, the sentiment is by Papermania and the papers are from Dovecraft.

I hope to be back soon with another card to share with you.
