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.

Easter Honey Pip

Hi, how are you this afternoon?

It has turned cold and miserable here so I thought I would watch an old film on TV and make an Easter card or two.

This little sweetheart is Honey Pip from the Sugar Nellies, Sherbet Pips Range of rubber stamps.

I have coloured her with Promarker Pens and mounted the image onto gold card.  The backing paper is from a Polka Doodle CD and the fab little daffodils are from WOC, the ribbon is from my stash.

If you are looking for my other Easter cards for the Crafty Boots Easter Challenge, they can be found at ........
