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.

Tiny Butterflies


For the past week I have been posting cards featuring butterflies and I have been telling you how my friend Mrs Beez and I have been raising awareness of the charity Amy and Friends, and the work they do to support children suffering from Cockayne Syndrome.

I have two more cards to share with you today.

I made the butterflies with a Martha Stewart punch and the sentiment is a Stampin' Up stamp.

I think my tree could have been a little bigger (or my butterflies a little smaller) but you have to work with what you have and I have this lovely Clarity Stamp, split tree.

I have recently become a bit of a fan of Pinterest and today's cards were inspired by some of the cards I have seen there, especially this one

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.



  1. I think the top card may be my favourite of all the projects - so, so pretty and a gorgeous colour combination. That stamp is so elegant and your butterfly punch is much cuter than the one I have. Superb!

  2. WOW, stunningly elegant cards, Dionne! As I say "simplicity at its best" Adoring your simple design and use of all the butterflies. Absolutely amazing! Loving both cards!
