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.

Mother Loves Me


How are you today?

My neighbours recently had the most gorgeous baby girl, she is so cute.  There is something about a new baby, isn't there?

This is another of A Day for Daisies beautiful new baby images, this one is called 'Mother Loves Me'.   

I coloured the image with a combination of Promarkers and Copic pens.   I then mounted it on some gold mirri card.  I think that you can just about make out the glittering on the background paper, which is from a Forever Friends stack, is.  The polka dot paper is from Papermainia  and the ribbon, pram charm and flat backed gems are from my stash.

I wanted to make a little something for her, so I knitted a couple of tiny cardigans to go with the card I made.   

They are very small but she is so tiny herself, I think it will be a while before they fit her.

  1. That is a beautiful image and as ever you have coloured it superbly (love the colour of the mother's dress). I love how you add little charms to your baby cards. The cardigans are gorgeous but the pink one is sooo cute it looks good enough to eat! xx
