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.

Oh Little Star!

Good morning

I should like to show you another of the cards I made at one of Stephanie-Emma's recent Stampin' Up Workshops.

I made this card on dove grey card.  First I stamped this beautiful star in silver onto white card and then added the smaller snowflakes around the edge - I added some crystal gems to the centre of the snowflakes.  Next, I stamped 'Joy to the World' over the star and, finally, I mounted the design on dark blue card before adding it to the grey card.

I think this was my favourite of all the cards we made that day, it is way more sparkly than it looks in the photograph.



  1. This is gorgeous and so festive. Love the monochromatic colours.
