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.

Playing in the Sand

Welcome to my blog and thank you for taking the time to visit today.

Regular visitors will remember me saying on Wednesday that the current challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges is Summer Holidays and that this had reminded me of some postcards which I made a couple of years ago.

Here is another of those postcards, which I have up-cycled into a card.

This image is from Mo's Digital Pencil and is called Kai in the Sand, isn't he the cutest?

When I made the postcard I mounted the image on some silver mirri card and cut it to the standard postcard size of 4 ¼” x 6”. Then I coloured the image with Promakers, after which I added some Glossy Accents to the beach ball to give it a high gloss plastic look and I created the effect of sand with Flower Soft.  The card's backing paper is from Dove Craft and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

I hope you have a great weekend.
