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.

You Have to Kiss a Lot of Frogs

Thursday already, where has this week gone?

When I first heard about the current Crafty Boots Challenge my first thoughts 'where on earth am I going to find stamps with crowns'?  As it turned out, they are so easy to find, I never realised that little queens and princesses are such common themes.

These images illustrating the story of the Princess and the Frog are from Tiddly Inks.  The image of the princess is called 'Kiss Me' and the cute little frog and the sentiment are from a collection of sentiments called 'Froggie Thoughts'.

I coloured both images with Promarkers and mounted them on silver mirri, I also added a sprinkling of glitter.  The papers are from my stash and the pretty poppies are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Don't forget to enter you projects into the Crafty Boots 'Queens, Princesses and Crowns' Challenge.

Good Luck.


  1. This is brilliant! That sentiment is hilarious and I love the spotty background. xx

    1. Ha ha, thank you. There were some great sentiments in the Froggie Thoughts collection. I have some crackers saved for next week!
