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.

It has been very exciting recently with celebrations all round, as two members of my family announced their engagements.

I have chosen one of my favourite Teddy Bo images for this card.

I coloured the image, which is called Love Swing, with my Promarkers and cut the shapes with my Nesties.  The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the paper from DoveCraft.  If you look very carefully you should be able to see a tiny gem on her ring finger.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Craft Us Crazy - Love
Drunken Stampers Challenge - Something New (The flowers)
Hotshot Craft Challenge  - Flowers
Oldie but a Goodie Challenge - Have a Heart (Card, Nesties and Promarkers)
Simply Create Too, Love is in the Air
Teddy Bo Challenge, Anything Goes
