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.

Beside the Seaside, Beside the Sea

It's not really the weather to beside the sea at the moment but last week's Crafty Boots Nautical Challenge reminded me that I had the Faye Whittaker Collection CD and had never used it.

I actually made this set of six quick cards (and trust me they were very quick to make) last week but I did not find the time to post them.

All the toppers and the backing papers came from the CD and the Craftwork cards Craft Candi came from Crafty Boots on-line store.

Even if it's not the weather for paddling these fabulous Faye Whittaker images lifted my spirits, I hope they do the same for you.



  1. These are fab, that's the best thing with CD's you can whip up quick cards that are just as stunning as the ones that take you ages. Zo xx
