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.

Wednesday already, where does the time go?
Today my card is a birthday card for my niece, I now have 4 nieces and they are all wonderful girls. My card features one of Saturated Canary's wonderful girls, this one is called Sabrina.
I have been posting cards featuring butterflies for the last few weeks to help my friend, Mrs Beez, raise awareness of the charity Amy and Friends, and the work they do to support children suffering from Cockayne Syndrome.
I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it on silver mirri and dark blue card. I then made bunting from some off cuts, I strung the pennants on twine and attached it to the card with brads. The backing paper is from a Papermania stack, it features bunting, birdhouses and butterflies.
Please visit Mrs Beez's blog to find out more about the work of Amy and Friends and how Mrs Beez is trying to raise awareness of this condition.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
