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.

Another Little Mermaid
How was your weekend? I had a lovely relaxing time. Just me, a stack of images and my pens, what could be better? Well, I suppose the weather could have been better, it has turned quite chilly and wet.
So, day eight, I can hardly believe I am still managing to post a card a day. Actually, I still have lots of images to share with you and in order to do that by the end of this challenge I think I am going to have to get my finger out and start posting two cards a day from now on.
If you have been following my journey you will remember that I made a card last week, featuring the Little Mermaid. That one was a lovely Sylvia Zet stamp of a a merchild, today she is all grown up!
This Little Mermaid is Pearl by Saturated Canary.
I coloured Pearl with Promarkers and added crystal gems to her hair where the original image had small bubbles - I tried colouring them with clear WoS, then I tried Glossy Accents but neither looked right, so in the end I went with the small crystals. I then mounted her on silver mirri and green glitter card. The papers are by DoveCraft.
I hope to be back again later today with another card to share with you.
