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.

Swing Your Pants

'Swing your Pants' was the catch phrase for a couple of 'comedians' on a Saturday morning TV programme when I was younger, I don't suppose you remember them?

I hope the start to the week was not too bad for you.  Mine was fairly hectic and I completely forgot to post this birthday card!

This cute little rabbit is another of my vintage stamps, I coloured it with Promarkers and then mounted it on Silver mirri card and some gorgeous pink glitter card.  The backing paper and ribbon are from my stash whilst the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

I hope the rest of this week goes well for you.



  1. Simon and Trevor - I do remember!! We were wondering what had happened to them as Dick and Dom seemed to replace them. I love this. Without wanting to overlook the cute rabbit image, the colours are fabulous and that ribbon is stunning. xx

  2. What a wonderful birthday card! That bunny is so cute and I just love the bright pink ribbon, great colour and your flowers are so pretty and delicate! hugs :)
