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.

It is a very wet, miserable day here and I have to wait in for some last minute parcels to be delivered.  I thought this would be an ideal time to share some more of my Christmas cards with you.

This image is called 'Sticky' and is from Mo's Digital pencil.  I printed the image onto Crafty Boots Deluxe Crafter's Card and coloured it with Promarkers.  I then added Polar White Flower Soft to his hat.  I then mounted it on some green glittered card and a piece of green polka dot card from my stash.

The snowflake backing paper is by Dovecraft and the little reindeer  and the poinsettia are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Both the 8 x 8 card blank and the sentiment are by Craftwork Cards, which also came from the Crafty Boots on-line store.

  1. Hi Dionne
    Love this card too. Beautifully shaped base and choice of papers. The image is sweetness itself. Loving those deer which make super fantastic embellishments.
