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.

Chocolate Pip with Basket of Roses


How has your week been, can you believe that it is Friday already?

Regular visitors to my blog will know that the current challenge at Crafty Boots Challenge is 'Good Luck'.    I have made  this good luck card using one of the new Sherbet Pip digital stamps from Funky Kits, this one is called Chocolate Pip.

I distressed the card using Stormy Skies and Pine Needles Ranger Distress Inks and added a doilie.  I coloured the image with pro markers and WOS pens.

The basket originally contained Easter eggs but I cut around them and added some Wild Orchid Crafts roses in their place.  The fabric butterfly I have had for some time and cannot remember where it came from.

Thank you for stopping by to read my blog, I would love you to leave a comment if you have the time.  

I hope you have a great weekend.



  1. Hi Dionne
