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.

Little Drummer Boy

I have a late addition to my cards that were Inspired by a Song Title for - the theme of the most recent Crafty Boots Challenge.  The Little Drummer Boy sung by Bing Crosby and David Bowie.

This stamp has been in my stash for about twenty years but I still love colouring it.  I mounted it on some card from C&C and I added some baker's twine and a button.
