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.

A Scottish Castle

I hope 2017 has started well for you, it is cold here and I do not like being this cold, I just want to curl up and hibernate.  So I thought it was time to look forward to a little bit of spring with this Delicious Doodles image called 'Scottish Castle and Gardens'.  It is one of a set, I just love this set of images, they are so pretty and very easy to colour.


I coloured this image with F&C polychromos pencils and mounted it on silver mirri and Garden Green card.  The gorgeous backing papers are from a K & Co paper stack designed by Tim Coffey.

The sweet little hydrangea flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the butterfly die is by Memory Box.  Everything else is from my stash.

I hope you have a good week.

  3. Wow Dionne. I have to say, I would have thought that to be a pre-coloured image if I didn't know better! Beautifully done! I love the entire composition of this one! The green tones, floral patterns, gold butterflies, it's all so gorgeous!!

    Hope all is going well, finally returned your email yesterday. Sorry for being so tardy. sending hugs :)
