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.

Honey Pip with Daffodils

Good morning blogland, I hope you are feeling tip top today.

The current challenge  at Crafty Boots Challenges is the colour Yellow and I thought that this stamp  from the Sugar Nellies Home Grown range would be perfect.  This Sherbet Pips rubber stamps is called Honey Pip.

I coloured this image with Promarkers and WOS.  The lovely daffodils are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

If you haven't entered this Challenge yet there is still time, so hop over to the  Crafty Boots Challenge blog today.
