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.

Sunflowers and Butterflies

Hello again, how is your day going?

Mine has been pretty busy but I just have time for a quick post .... more pink butterflies!

A few weeks ago I was so excited because I actually won a challenge.  I hardly ever enter other people's challenges, so winning one is a really rare event.  My prize was two digital images of my choice, this is beautiful image is one of my selection.  It is called Butterfly and Sunflowers from Eureka Stamps.

I coloured it with Promarkers and mounted it on pearlescent card.  The background paper is by Papermania and the sentiment from Craftwork Cards.  I cut the butterfly from more pearlescent card using Memory Box dies, the flourish die is from Cheery Lyn Deigns.


I am entering this card in the following Challenges:

Eureka Stamps - Anything Goes Challenge # 44
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes


  1. I think I'm going to have to employ you for my special blog project next month. Loving all your butterfly designs and this is no exception. Congratulations on winning the challenge, very well deserved :) x

  2. Congratulations on your challenge win, Dionne. Well done! Love the image you used for this fab card. Loving your bright and cheerful colour palette as well.
