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.

Butterfly and Thistle


I have another butterfly card to share with you today.  As you know, 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, by placing their butterfly emblem on our projects.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it on silver Mirri and Midnight Muse card.  The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Finally I added some flat backed gems.

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 love these colours - cool but summery if that makes sense? As always, beautiful colouring and that hint of mirri just perfect. Hope you got away today x
