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.

Good Luck with Your Driving Test

Good morning

Isn't this  Teddy Bo & Co image adorable?  I have been looking for the right card to use this image on and the current Crafty Boots 'Good Luck' Challenge seemed perfect.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it on gold mirri card.  I also created the 'L' driving plate on my computer.  I tried tearing the 'L' plate in half but that did not look right, so in the end I left it whole and used foam pads to mount it onto the card.  The pretty blue backing paper is from Dovecraft.



  1. Hi Dionne
    Gorgeous card! The image is really adorable and beautifully coloured. Great creation of the "L" plate too. The Sun is out today and it is very hot. Finally! I better go, find my sunglasses and catch up on some vitamin D.
