Welcome


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.

Little Sailor Boy

I have a lot of family birthday's in April and last week saw the birthday of my brother-in-law.  He is a great guy and the love of my sister's life, they are been together forever.  I have something of a nautical theme going on at the moment and I chose this image for his card.


The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil, it is called 'Solemn Sailor'.  After colouring it with Promarkers I mounted it on silver mirri and red card.


The backing paper was a freebie from Bearly Mine (sadly no longer available).  The charm is from my stash and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

    1. Thank you. The backing paper was a good find, it worked so well with my layout. I am so disappointed that Bearly Mine are no more, I had just started collected their backing papers.
