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.

Tucked in by Mother

Good morning

Regular visitors to my blog know that I have been busy making new baby cards.  So far they have all been little girl cards.

Here is another, this rather touching image is Tucked In By Mother from A Day for Daisies.

I coloured the image with a combination of Promarkers and Copic pens.  I then mounted it on some gold mirri card.  I am so disappointed that the photograph does not show how beautifully glittered the background paper, which is from a Forever Friends stack, is.

The polka dot paper is from Papermainia and the stunning glittered card is from Stampin' Up.  The ribbon, stork charm and flat backed gems are from my stash.

  1. What a cute image, beautifully coloured of course. That background paper is perfect and it goes without saying that I love all the sparkle and charm.xx
