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.

Nothing was Stirring, Not Even a Mouse


I love using this House-Mouse stamp, and use this stamp quite a lot.

I used my Flexmarkers and Promarkers to colour the stamp and I added some Glossy Accents to the candle.  I went over the pink frosting with a clear Wink of Stella pen to give it a lovely sparkly effect.

The matching papers and sentiment came from the House-Mouse Inserts CD and the contrast paper from a Docraft DC.  The gems are from my stash.



  1. fun image !!
    love the simplicity in it :)

  2. Hi Dionne
    What a relaxing birthday card. I am recognizing the backing paper... I have "Me To You - Especially for you 6x6 paper pad" and that paper is in it. Love the image and matching sentiment too.
