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.

In the Pink

Happy Halloween everyone.

Wow, and that was October, where is this year going?  We are already half way through the current Crafty Boots 'Pink Challenge.  This challenge is our way of giving support to Beast Cancer Awareness Month .... it is also a good excuss to go all pink and girlie.

This little lady all dressed in pink is 'Honey Pip' from Funky Kits, one of their Sherbet Pip range.  I coloured her with Promarkers and then mounted her on silver mirri and some checkered paper from a K & Co paper stack designed by Tim Coffey.  The backing paper is from a Craftwork Cards stack.

The buttons, sentiment, ribbon and pom poms are all from my stash.

This week we have three fabulous Guest Designers at Crafty Boots Challenges, make sure you pop across and chack out their amazing work.



  1. Beautiful card Dionne! I love your girly image, so perfect for the pink theme and the lovely feminine feel of your card! Beautiful!!

    Hope you are having a lovely first day of November. Our temp is supposed to go as high as 20 degrees today, not really November weather if you ask me. Crazy Canadian weather!! lol. Have a sweet day my friend. :)

    1. Thank you, I was going for an all pink look but the tartan picnic blanket effect just seemed the way to go.

      It has been a miserable day here, very cold in the morning and rain in the afternoon. But that is what I would expect for this time of year.

  2. Love the cute image very girly-very cold here today but got some washing dry-omg what a typical English thing to say lol

    1. Lol Carol, so English in fact, I did not even think it sounded odd!

      I have a big soft spot for Sugar Nellies and got a big shock this week when I discovered that Funky Kits are having a closing down sale.
