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.

Bows and Roses
Crafty Boots Challenges have launched a new challenge today, Anything Goes - provided it includes a stamped image.
I have used one of the new Saturated Canary rubber stamp range from the Crafty Boots on-line store. This lovely design is called Gardener Gayle and I could not resist including I whole hedge of roses.
The image is mounted on silver Glimmer Paper from Stampin' Up and the backing paper is from a Papermania stack. The Happy Birthday sentiment is also from Stampin' Up as is the ribbon. I am sure you have spotted that the roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I have been admiring the fabulous projects the rest of the Design Team have made, why not take a peek for yourself and don't forget to enter your own work into the Challenge.
