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.

What a Jolly Bow

I really enjoyed colouring Jolly Giraffe from Teddy Bo, although you need a steady hand to do his mane!

I printed the image on the Crafty Boots Deluxe Crafters Card and coloured it with my Promarkers, the card is from C&C.  I have not added a sentiment yet, I will leave that until I send the card and know what I want it to say.


  1. The giraffe looks really jolly. That's probably the lovely way you coloured it.

  2. I love your colouring. Can you remember what colour pro markers you used for him? xx
