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.

I am afraid that the tree branches in this design are difficult to see because the backing paper is very delicate but trust me they are there, the backing paper is covered in trees and branchesl, it is not helped by the poor quality photograph. I thought I had solved the problem of my photos by changing the bulb in my craft light .... maybe not.
The backing paper is one of the designs from one of my favourite paper stacks - The Promise by First Edition. I also embossed some marbled paper with a wood grain effect before cutting the banner shape from it. The Owl stamp was a freebe I got in a magazine many years ago and have never used before, isn't he cute?
The tiny butterfly is from a Stampin' Up Beautiful Wings Embosslits die and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards. The ribbon, charm and gems are from my stash.
Have a great weekend.
