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.

Easter Carly Take II

Good morning, I hope you are having a great weekend.  It was lovely here yesterday but I am told that it is all down hill from now and the weather will be wet and windy for the rest of the weekend.

I am hear this morning to share another of my Easter cards with you.  This one features 'Easter Carly' from Mo's Digital Pencil.

After colouring the image with Promarkers I mounted it onto Perfect Plum coloured card from Stampin' Up.  The matching polka dot paper and the zig zag  paper were also from Stampin' Up.  The other paper was from the Dovecraft Back to Basics IV stack.  The butterflies were die cut using a Sizzix die.  The Card Candy and flat backed gems were from my stash.

I shall be back with another card this afternoon but there is still time for you to enter your Easter projects in the current Crafty Boots Easter Challenge.



  1. Such a pretty Easter card Dionne! I am loving that image, so sweet with her little stuffed bunny! I really enjoy all the layering, so many wonderful papers, a real treat!! Wishing you a Happy Easter! hugs :)
