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.

The Happiest Day
Two very dear friends of mine were married this week. It was a fairytale wedding and a perfect day. In all honesty I have never seen two people more in love or so happy to be getting married.
I wanted to send them a card which captured something of this magical day. After a lot of searching I chose a Saturated Canary design, which I coloured with Copics and then sprayed with Crafter's Companion Spray and Sparkle.
I added lots of extra glitter to the dress.
I mounted the image on embossed white card and silver mirri. Then I added a little ribbon from Stampin' Up and some flat backed pearls. The gorgeous white roses came from Wild Orchid Crafts and, if you look really closely, you will spot some pearl headed hat pins amongst the roses.
It was a stunning wedding, one which we shall all be talking about for many years to come. A perfect day for the perfect couple.
