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.

Jelly Pip


Where has this week gone? It only seems like yesterday that I sat posting my cards for the Crafty Boots Easter Challenge.  (If you are looking for my Easter cards post, please click here.)

I think this Sugar Nellie Home Grown stamp is sooooo cute, she is called Jelly Pip from the Sherbet Pip range.

The backing paper is from DoveCraft and the card blank and sentiment are from Craftwork Cards - I bought these from Crafty Boots.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
