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.

Come on England


I hope you are having a fabulous weekend.

Very few people will have failed to have noticed that the Football World Cup is on at the moment and today see's England's first match.

I have another football themed card to share with you today.

The little image is from LOTV, which I coloured with Promarkers and mounted on silver card.  The football pitch embellishment was from a Messy Rabbit CD and the backing paper and sentiment are from my stash.

Over at Crafty Boots Challenges, we are celebrating the coming summer of sport, and in particular the World Cup, with a sporting challenge.

Come on England!
