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.

Welcome Babygirl


Regular visitors to my blog will know that we have a new baby in the family and last Monday I shared one of the cards I made with you.

Today I have a second New Baby card to show you, I made this one for the very proud grandparents.

The image is one of Mo Mannings, from Mo's Digital Pencil, the image is called Babygirl S.

I coloured it with my Promarkers and the papers are from my stash.  The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and in truth, I cannot remember where I got the teddy bear charm from.

Over at Crafty Boots Challenges the current theme is celebrations, why not pop over there and join in the celebrations by adding your  latest creations.

Good luck.
