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.

Sports Day


A new challenge starts at Crafty Boots Challenges today and, in recognition of the amazing sporting summer we have ahead of us, the theme for the next two weeks is SPORT.

With so many sports to choose from it was very difficult to pick a sport for my card today.  Football (soccer) seemed the most obvious with the Football World Cup about to start but in the end I went with golf.

My little golfer is a stamp from Sugar Nellie Home Grown Manga called 'FORE!'.

I coloured him with Promarkers and mounted him on silver card and  some adorable bee paper from one of Joanna Sheen's Messy Rabbit CDs.

The vintage labels and golf charm are from my stash and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

Please take a look at the fabulous inspirational projects made by the rest of the Crafty Boots Challenges design team.

Good luck with your entry.

  1. Fabulous! How cute is that charm (where do you find them>)??? Of course I adore that bee paper (need!) and love the addition of the vintage labels. When is the big day?
