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.

Classic Wedding

My lovely neighbours recently decided to tie the knot and I wanted to make them a special card to celebrate the occasion.


The digital image is from A Day for Daisies and it is called 'You May Kiss the Bride'.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and covered the bridal gown and veil with glitter.

I recently purchased a lot of digital background images from Esty, this was one of them - a match made in heaven.  I mounted the image on silver mirri and black pearlised cards.

    1. Thank you Lisette. I must get some wrapping paper for the present we got them so I can give them the card ... instead of sitting here admiring my own handy work!
