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 have been making good use of this challenge to, not only use some new bits of craft stash, but also things which I bought last year but never had the opportunity to use - like this digital image from Delicious Doodles.
The image is called 'Scottish Castle and Gardens'. It strongly reminds me of Culzean Castle, which I was lucky enough to visit as a girl. It is famous for it's Robert Adams architecture and beautiful gardens. Whist this image is not identical to the castle, there are striking similarities, however, Scotland does have a lot of castles.
I coloured the image with F&C polychromos pencils and mounted it on some glitter card and some green card from my stash. The backing paper was a freebie from Stampin' up and the boarder is from Studio Calico. The Craftwork Cards sentiment was also from my stash and I purchased a set of the butterfly buttons just before Christmas.
Don't forget about the Crafty Boots Challenges challenge.
