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.

Calla Lilies and Butterflies


At last I seem to be getting my act together and posting my pink butterfly projects.  After posting two sets of ATCs yesterday and card the day before, I have another card for you this morning.

These pretty Calla Lilies are from Stitchy Bear.    The papers are from my favourite Papermania stack and the sentiment from Craftwork Cards.  I cut the butterflies from some pearlescent card using some Memory Box dies.


I am entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Wonderful use of the StitchyBear digi. Like the Butterfly embellishing. Thank you for entering OSAAT Ch#168 Use a Digi.

  2. This is so lovely and elegant! I love the soft color palette that you used. Just beautiful.

    Thank you for playing along with the Stitchy Angels this week!
