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.

Spring Bringer

All morning I have been posting the cards I have made for the new Craft Boots challenge - All that Glitters..............

This fabulous Sylvia Zet image is covered in glitter, but I am not sure you can see it from this photograph.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers and used my Nesties to create the frame.  I added a few flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and the paper is from a Forever Friends CD.

For now, this is my final post for the new Crafty Boots Challenge - All that Glitters, you can see my other posts below, but why not pop over to the Crafty Boots Challenges blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have created, they really are very talented ladies.
