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.

Red High Heels

Today is International Woman's Day and perhaps it is not entirely a coincidence that the current Crafty Boots Challenge is 'Something for the Lady'.

A few weeks ago I made several cards using die cuts, when I was tidying my desk up afterwards I found that I had several bits and pieces left over. I put this quick birthday card together using those left overs, there is nothing here which was not in my 'Left Over' box.

I used some embossed Real Red card for the background and added two Tattered Lace High Heel Glam Stiletto Shoe dies. I then added the butterfly boarder by Joy Craft. Finally, I added several daisies made from Joy Crafts Flower Daisy die and some white brads.

Not bad for something which on another day might have been destined for the bin.

Thank you for dropping by today.



  1. Beautiful Dionne!! I love those shoes, so intricate and the silver glitter really adds a wonderful addition to the red and white palette. Gorgeous! hugs :)

    1. Not bad for a load of left overs, it felt a bit like playing in the dressing up box!
