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.

Frozen Birthday

Today is the fifth birthday of one of my little nieces.    I have never known a child so full of life, it literally bursts out of her and infects everyone else in the room, she is such a joy.  Like so many other little girls, she is obsessed with the Disney film Frozen and I am sure she will have lots of 'Frozen' presents today - I know I have bought her quite a few.

Of course her birthday card had to be of Elsa and Anna themed and I managed to find quite a few free colouring book images on-line.

After downloading the image I coloured it with Promakers and added lots of sparkle with both Wink of Stella pens and a clear Wink of Stella brush pen.  I then mounted the image on white glimmer papers and some blue glitter card.  The finishing touches came from some blue and yellow organza ribbons and silver glittery peel off snowflakes.  I made the birthday sentiment on the computer.

Recently her mum has been wowing us all with her amazing cake decorating skills but this Frozen cake has to be her crowning glory.  It took her ten hours to decorate and she was up all night.

I shall be back tomorrow with a new Crafty Boots Challenge, see you then.



  1. Your card is beautiful, love all the glitteriness and the snowflakes and ribbons are so pretty. As for the cake - WOW! xx

    1. Thank you. Colouring the image was a bit nerve-wracking, I knew that if I made one mistake with the colours, I would be in trouble!

      I am so impressed with that cake, I just had to show every one.

  2. What a wonderful card and for such a great theme too! Now I have that song stuck in my head, DOH! Just a quick note to apologize for not returning your email yet. I seen to have fallen so far behind this week. Promise to get back to you soon my friend. hugs :)

    1. Thank you, it was important to me to get this one right. I did my best but my niece still found fault with my work!

      Please, never worry about returning emails. Life is stressful enough, don't add to it.
