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.

Happy Anniversay

Thanks to the current Crafty Boots Challenge, I am getting myself very organised and have made my next wedding anniversary card already.

The theme of the current Challenge is 'Hearts and Valentine's' and as I made a Valentine card for my hubby last week, so today I have taken advantage of the hearts part of the challenge.

I love the look of these Memory Box heart dies, which I backed with red glitter card.  The striped glitter paper is actually a wrapping paper that caught my eye.  The roses are from wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment is by Kanban Crafts.

Don't forgot to take a look at the gorgeous projects created by my very talented Crafty Boots team mates.



  1. Gorgeous Dionne! That Memory Box heart is beautiful and I love the layering on the glittery paper! Gorgeous backdrop too, so shimmery and elegant! Stunning! hugs :)

    1. Ah, thank you. I love that wrapping paper but to be honest it sheds so much glitter .... I am covered in it!


  2. Fabulous design Dionne, gorgeous work!
