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.

Up, up and Away
My card today features lace from Wild Orchid Crafts and ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I recently purchased some hessian (burlap) for this project but, when I looked for it this morning, I could not find it anywhere. However, a friend gave me a role of cork at Christmas and this seemed the idea opportunity to use it.
The butterfly die is from Memory Box, I used some of Pamellia Johnson's fantastic texture paste and a Tim Holtz stencil to make the first layer. The other layers are kraft card and an embossed sheet of white card.
My fellow teamsters have been busy, please make sure you check them out when you enter your project into the challenge.
