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.

Jasmine Geisha Girl


I hope that you had a good weekend and the weather where you are has been kind.  It is very cold there today but at least there is no snow.

Today I have another of the Sherri Baldy geisha girls from The Scrapbook Stamp Society, this one is called Jasmin Geisha.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and Wink of Stella pens.  I mounted it on silver mirri, the papers are from a Papermania stack and the cherry blossom flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Don't forget to enter the challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges, the theme is 'Flowers'.



  1. Another super gorgeous card, Dionne!!!! Love Jasmine and the way you coloured her in. Love the papers you used and the miri gives it that extra bit of sparkle.
