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.

A Hunting we Shall Go


I had a fabulous day out at the seaside yesterday, I went to visit a very dear friend who lives by the sea.  We had a really lovely day and I was reluctant to come home when it was time to leave.

Oh well, back to reality and more catch up posts, this is another of the cards I made for the recent Crafty Boots Black and White Challenge.


The image I used for this cards was a recent freebie from Gecko Galz, which I obtained from the blog of my good friend and fellow team mate, Mrs Beez.  As you can see, I mounted the image on some black and white card and added some black ribbon to the bottom of the card.  If you look carefully you will see that I added glitter to the white card, either side of the ribbon, using double sided tape.

I hope you have a great day.

  1. Beautiful card Dionne! I just love that image and the glitter strips are such a fabulous way to add interest when you aren't using colours! As someone who lives in the middle of the city and hasn't seen real water in about 6 years, there's no way you could pry me away from the seaside!! HAHA! Sounds like you had a nice time, hope you bottled some of the amazing smells and sounds! hugs :)

    1. Pamellia, the smell was fantastic and nothing, and I mean nothing, can beat the thrill I always get at my first glimpse of the sea. It makes my tummy tingle to see that chinck of water through a gap in the trees or as you crest a hill. That is one of the great things about living in England, the sea is never that far away ... certainly not 6 hours.

    1. I have you to thank for the lovely image, which gave me the idea for the black and white card.

      Perhaps one day we can paddle together in the North Sea.
