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.

Jungle Bells

I have another early Christmas card to share with you today.

This one could not have been simpler to make - well actually it could have been, I could have saved myself the trouble I went to in colouring the bells before I decided to glitter them instead - I do love a bit of glitter!

This is another image from A Day for Dairies called Christmas Bells.  I mounted the image on some gold glitter card and some red Centura Pearl card.  The backing paper is from Kanban Crafts.

Thank you for dropping by today.



  1. Another stunner - love the elegance of this, especially as it is a tall thin card. Fabulous glittery bells and the backing paper finishes it off perfectly.

  2. Such a pretty image, I, too, love the shape of this card, goes perfectly with the bells! Thanks for your sweet comment, take care, Ira x
