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.

Alice in Wonderland

Good morning.

Day three of my personal challenge to post a card every day for the duration of the current Crafty Boots Challenges, the theme of which is inspired by Children's Stories.

My card today is inspired by Alice from the books Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll.

This version of Alice is by Mo Manning.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it on silver mirri card and glitter paper from DoveCraft.

The flowers and butterfly charm are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I also added some die cut swirls and flat backed gems from my stash.

I am really enjoying looking at all the cards that have been entered into the Crafty Boots Challenge, don't forget to enter your favourite project.


PS  And don't forget to come back tomorrow to see my next card.

  1. Hi Dionne
    I was wondering what character it is going to be today. You are doing well on your cards. Love this one too! Such a beautiful image and also loving all your flowers, charm and the die cuts.
    Looking forward to what it coming tomorrow. Any hints? (LOL)
