Welcome


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.

Gone Fishing

I got up this morning to find that the weather had completely changed during the night, gone the hot sunny days we have been enjoying recently and instead it is wet and chilly.  Let's hope this is just a temporary set back because the current challenge over at Crafty Boots is 'You are my Sunshine' and, for some reason, I find it is so much easier to make sunny cards when the sun is actually shinning (if this weather keeps up I shall be making Christmas cards next week).

Luckily I had already made this card, so I was able to channel the notion of hot, sunny afternoons, by a river or lake.  I confess that this would be my idea of fishing!


This image is from Teddy Bo & Co, I think it is called Teddy Bo Boat Trip but the Teddy Bo on-line shop seems to be off line, so I cannot check.


I coloured the image with Promarkers and Aquamarkers and mounted it on silver mirri card and some dark blue card.  I dabbed a little Glossy Accents on the jumping fish so they looked wet.  The backing papers are from Studio Calico and the card candy is from Craftwork Cards and the sentiment is from my stash.

There is still plenty of time for you to enter this fun Crafty Boots Challenge.

Good luck.

  1. Great masculine card and image-the jaunty image gives a sense of motion to the image

  2. Such a cute card. I kinda wish I was doing that! Fishing, sleeping in a boat, and relaxing!

    1. We can all dream. I imagine myself in the boat dangling my fingers (or toes) in the water as I float downstream.
