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.

Through the Letterbox
For my card today I dug out my favourite butterfly stamp - Stampin' Up's Swallowtail Butterfly. Some time ago I saw something like this on Pinterest by Brian King and then I started seeing similar cards all over the place. It has always struck me that the effect is rather like looking through a letterbox at the subject.
I coloured the stamped image with Promarkers and I then took my courage in both hands and cut away the wings top and bottom. I mounted the image half a dozen times on different coloured card. Finally I added some flat backed gems.
