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.

Clean and Simple
Today I thought I would have another go at a card for a more mature gentleman. My original concept was to layer lots of white card, but I could see that was not working so I added the layers of red.
I cut the letters out four times and stuck them together to get very chunky and solid looking letters. What looks a very quick and easy card actually took me hours and I am really not sure about it.
To be honest I am on the verge of going back to sending the men in my life pictures of toy soldiers and dragons. What do you think?
