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.

You are my Sunshine

I hope that you are having a great weekend.

Hubby is working this weekend so I have had the Promarkers and rubber stamps out.

I bought this stamp some time ago but had not had the time to make a card with it.

It is another Sugar Nellie, Home Grown stamp from their Sherbet Pip range, this one is called Posy Pip and it just cried out sunflowers to me.

I have decided to enter this card into the following challenges:

Craft Us Crazy - Favourite Colour/Favourite Embellishment (my favourite embellishment is ribbon but this rosette is really growing on me)
Crafty Anne's Challenge Blog - Bold and Bright
Paper Crafting Journey - Make it Cute
Simply Create Too - Add Sunshine to your Day
