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.

Pets Corner

Autumn is officially here and looking out of the window this week I can see this is only too true, who would have thought that only last week I was complaining about how hot is was!

I am back today with another of my 'All Squared Up' designs for the current Crafty Boots Challenge.  This has been such a fun challenge, and to be honest, it has not really taken me too far out of my comfort zone because I love matting and layering.

Something a little different today with a telescopic style of design.  However, to fit all of the washi tapes in I had to fiddle a little with the placement of my squares - I guess you cannot have it all ways.  By the way, the washi tape is from Stampin' Up and the 'rivets' are Craftwork Cards Card Candy.

This little guy is a rubber stamp from Funky Kits called 'Pets Corner', he is from their Sugar Nellie range.  I coloured him with Promarkers and mounted him on silver mirri and green card.  The sentiment is a Stampin' Up stamp.

There is still time for you to enter your square designs into this Crafty Boots Challenge.

Good Luck.

  2. Such a cutie card! Love that shine and I am a fan of green!

    1. Thank you. I struggled with this one, probably because I am not such a fan of green.
