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.

Happy Birthday Nicola


I hope that you are having a good weekend.

A couple of days ago it was my Nicola's birthday.  As a teenager Nicola was very serious about her martial arts and I could not resist this image from Mo's Digital Pencil when I saw it.  The image is called Karate Girl.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it on gold mirri card.  The paper is by Dovecraft and I the polka dot ribbon came from Joanna Sheen.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  1. Hi Dionne
    Happy Birthday to Nicola. I hope she had a great one. You made a very beautiful card for her and picked the image with so much thought. The paper is beautiful and those hand made alphabet letters too.
