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.

It's the weekend at last, I hope you had a great week. Day six 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.
I have chosen the story of Cinderella for my inspiration today.
This gorgeous stamp is from Saturated Canary and is called Cinders.
I have coloured her with a combination of Promarkers and a clear Wink of Stella pen, then I mounted the image on silver mirri card. The papers are from a paper stack by Docraft's Papermaina designed by Lucy Cromwell. The flowers and tiny silver bells are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Have a wonderful weekend.
