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.

A Snowy Christmas Stop-Over

Good morning.  I survived my trip to the dentist yesterday.  In fact, it was probably my best ever dental appointment, I was not even examined.  A quick chat and I'll see you in six months!  Ha ha!

I have another of my Delicious Doodles Christmas cards to share with you today.  This image is called 'A Snowy Stop-Over'.  I used F&C pencils to add colour to the image and then added glitter to highlight the snow.  I mounted the image on both red glittered card and gold mirri card.

The backing papers are from a Tim Coffey paper stack by K & Co and The Digital Rainbow.  The wooden snowflakes were a gift ans the sentiment came from Craftwork Cards.

I hope you have a great day and thank you for stopping by.



  1. How did you get away with not even having an examination??!!! What a relief. Another fabulous card with a gorgeous scene. Just the place to sit by the fire with a glass of mulled wine! xx

    1. Well, I did feel I could have just phoned the dentist and stayed home!

      You cannot baggsy all of the houses, Pamellia and I are waiting our turn. Anyway, as you know, this is a hotel and it exists in the real world - perhaps we should check it out some time (http://www.gordonarms.co.uk/) and sit by that lovely fire.

      Dionne xx
