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.

Happy Easter

Welcome fellow bloggers.

For the last couple of days the sun has been shinning and the birds singing, the clocks in the UK have switched to British Summer Time, and I suspect that spring is at last here. Tah-dah!

Yesterday was Mothering Sunday, which must mean that Easter is only 3 weeks away, and today a new challenge starting at Crafty Boots Challenges.  I suspect that you will not be surprized to hear that the theme for the next two weeks is 'Easter'.

I have been busy making Easter cards to send to my family and today I wish to share with you this one.

This image is one of Sugar Nellie's Home Grown digital Sherbet Pip stamps, this one is called Lambing Pip.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it on silver mirri and pink Centura Pearl card.

The gorgeous flowers are by Petaloo and the backing paper and butterfly are from my stash.

Please take the time to look at the Crafty Boots Challenges website and all of the lovely projects the rest of the Design Team have made.
