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.

Butterfly Princess

It is time for the Crafty Boots mid challenge reminder for the current Butterflies and Bees Challenge.  We have two wonderful Guest Designers joining the DT this week, Maxine and Carol are wonderful designers and we are so excited to have them joining us.

My card today features 'Butterfly Princess' from Saturated Canary

I coloured the image with Copic Markers and mounted it on silver mirri and Whisteria Wonder card from Stampin' UP.  The backing paper is also from Stampin' Up, as is the sentiment stamp.

The fabulous butterfly die is by Memory Box, the flat backed gems are from my stash.

There is still plenty of time for you to enter you butterfly or bee projects into the challenge, just check out the page on the Crafty Boots blog.

Good luck.
