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.

Darby and Joan

Good morning

It was the wedding anniversary of my sister and her husband last week, I have lost count of the number of years it has been now, but they are not quite as old as this couple.  However, I hope they are still this much in love when they reach their age.

This adorable couple are by Mo Manning and are called Tom and Tilly.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it on silver mirri.  The papers and buttons came from my stash and, of course, the daffodils are  from Wild Orchid Crafts.



  1. Fab card, great colouring - that reminds me of something I have for you actually... :) xxx

  2. Hi Dionne
    Beautiful anniversary card for your sister and her husband. Love the image you used.... totally perfect for anniversary! Love the daffodils... wondering if my real ones are surviving these freezing temperatures we are having the moment.
