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.

Elegant Christmas Tree
The current Crafty Boots Challenge is 'See the Woods for the Trees' and it has given me the perfect excuse to make a couple of much needed Christmas cards.
This gorgeous stylised Christmas tree is from Delicious Doodles. I coloured it with Promarkers and added glitter to the decoratons and deep red gems. It is so sad the glitter does not show up on this photograph.
I mounted the image on some silver mirri and also on some Real Red card. I found the fabulous backing paper in my stash, the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the flowers. leaves and berries are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Don't forget to enter your Christmas tree designs in this Crafty Boots Challenge.
