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.

Down in the Meadow

I have had this image for more than four years and never used it, now I look at it I cannot image why, it is such a pretty image.

It is another of my extensive collection of Teddy Bo & Co images, this one is called Bea in the Meadow.  Now let's see - I coloured it with Promarkers, then mounted it on gold mirri and blue and white cards.  The backing paper and blue card are from Stampin' Up.  The sentiment is from my stash. 

Today is your last chance to enter your projects in the current Crafty Boots Challenge, but hurry it closes at noon.  A new challenge starts tomorrow.

Enjoy your Sunday.



  1. This looks so smart with that crisp blue and clean lines. Love the colours you have chosen for her dress.xx

    1. Thank you, I really like the clean look of this card too. I thought her dressed looked a little like it is covered in bees!



Thank you for visiting my blog, I look forward to reading your feedback on my work. I hope you will visit again.
