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.

Golden Wedding

Some very dear friends recently celebrated there 50th Wedding Anniversary, by any standards that is an amazing achievement, and to be totally honest they really do not look old enough to have been married so long.

I love this IndigoBlu heart stamp, it embossed really well, lots of very fine detail.  I mounted it on some gold mirri card but I could not find any matching mat gold card, so I created my own with a Promarker.  The glittery organza ribbon came from my stash and I made the sentiment on my computer.

I really am very impressed with this stamp and plan to use it some more, so do not be surprized if you see it again in the near future.



  1. Wow Dionne, just gorgeous! I love that you did the heart in gold, so elegant! Think I will be adding that stamp to my wish list! I love the scalloped shaped card and that glittery ribbon is really fantastic! Wonderful Anniversary card! big hugs :)

    1. You are too kind, I have a more simplistic style than yourself - but occasional I strike out .... watch this space!

  2. Beautiful. I love that stamp and once again your heat embossing is superb. Gorgeous colours too. xx
