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.

Halloween Poem - Take II

Good morning

Last week I shared with you a card featuring a  'Frame It' image is by Bugaboo Digi Stamps and is called Halloween Poem.

I have created another card today using the same image.  However, as I wish to send this card through the post, I have challenged myself to try to keep it as flat as possible to save on postage charges.

I tried to colour the background of the Frame It pale blue but unfortunately, the ink has smudged a little.  I used Promarkers to colour the image and I mounted the finished image on silver mirri and then on blue glittered card.

The ribbon and pumpkin charm were from my stash.



  1. I love this image and I have a funny story to tell you about it. Looks great with the blue glitter and the silver charm. xx

    1. I'm still waiting to hear that funny story!
