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.

Good morning

I have another Saturated Canary stamp to share with you today, this one is called 'Suspenders' and it is is one of the range of rubber stamps available from the Crafty Boots store.

I struggle with cards for men, I like to add lots of pretty embellishments to my cards, but you cannot really add flowers and lots of charms to cards for the men in your life, can you?

Even without the charms and flowers I was very pleased with this card.  I stamped the image onto Crafty Boots Delux Crafters Card and I coloured it with Promarkers.  The coordinating papers are from Stampin' Up, as is the stamp I used for the sentiment.   I coordinated the glitter paper by colouring a white sheet of Glimmer Paper with one of my Promarkers.

For the past couple of weeks Crafty Boots Challenges have been all about the things we celebrate, birthday's marriages, new homes, births. graduating, passing a driving test.  There is still time to enter your latest project.

Good Luck.
