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.

Apple Pip

As any regular reader of my blog will tell you, I just love the Sherbet Pips rubber stamps from Sugar Nellies Home Grown range.

This is Apple Pip, isn't she adorable?

I coloured her with Promarkers.  The 'apple blossoms' are No 5 Forever Flowers, to these I added a small pearl in the centre.  Finally I added the butterfly, which is a Marianne Creatable die, and some Kanban Craft gems.

The polka dot paper is by Dovecraft.

I have entered this card in the following challenges:
