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.

I Want to Ride My Bicycle

Today I have a birthday card for a very special person to share with you.

My nephew rides his bike everywhere and I wanted a card that would reflect that, but the trouble I had finding a suitable digital image for this card.  I eventually tracked this vintage bicycle image at McMahon Five.

I have made this style of card with a stamp but it took a bit of thinking to make a card with a digital image.

By the way, the backing paper is by Stampin' Up and the sentiment is from Kanban Crafts.

I hope you have a very special birthday today James dear and I wish you many, many more of them.



  1. Fabulous. I love the triple layer that you've done. I'm sure he will love it. xx

  2. Such a wonderful masculine creation and which wouldn't want to have some wheels.
