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.

I hope you are having a fabulous afternoon.
A friend of ours is having a surprise Baby Shower this afternoon - which is why I have scheduled this post for so late in the day.
Unfortunately, I was not able to go to the party but I sent this card with my other friend.
I created a side stepper card and added some polka dot mirri card. I then added some stickers and an Anna Griffin sentiment. I also added a small piece of card for my message.
The image is from Saturated Canary and is called Ice Cream and Pickles (although I made my pickle into a small banana because just the thought of ice cream and pickled gherkins made me feel quite queasy.). I coloured it with Promarkers and added a small amount of Glossy Accent to the cherry to give it that shine.
