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.

I do have Christmas card to share with you today and it features another image from Delicious Doodles, this one is called 'A Crofter's Winter'.


As with the card I shared with you yesterday, I have used my F&C polychromos pencils to colour the image.


I and not sure you can see it, but I have added twinkle to some of the snow with a clear Wink of Stella Brush Pen.  Once again of the papers used on this card are Papermania's First Noel pack.

As I said yesterday, I have made three similar Christmas cards using these papers and Delicious Doodles images, come back tomorrow and I will share the final one of them with you.
