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 Fairy


I still cannot resist putting butterflies on the odd card.  I really like this image from A Day for Daisies, called Butterfly Fairy and oh look, there is a butterfly.

This is a simple easel card.  The daisy paper is from a Forever Friends stack.

The lace butterfly die is a Cheery Lynn design, which I backed with black glitter card.

I layered the image with silver mirri and blue pearl card and I added 3 flat backed gems from my stash.

As I coloured the image with Promarkers I noticed how striking the fairy was with white hair, so I left it uncoloured and shaded the background to make it pop.

Thank you for visiting my blog.
