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.

Humpty Dumpty

Good morning

Mid week already, I cannot believe how fast time is flying.  Day ten 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.

This mornings card is another double twisted easel card.  My inspiration for this card is the nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again

These fun Humpty Dumpty images are from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I coloured them with Promarkers and mounted them on mirri card.

I hope that my cards are giving you lots of ideas for something you can enter into this challenge, if you have never entered a challenge before this could be your opportunity, go on, have a go.



  1. Such a great card, super images. Zo xx

  2. Hi Dionne
    This card made me smile! You are a pro at double twisted easel cards! Love how you brought the humour in with 2 images. Coloured it in so brilliantly as always! Certainly a card to put a smile on anyone's face.

  3. Love how you're using the twisted easel to tell the stories and this is a great image. Amazing set of cards you have built up. I have a third of my idea done but currently away from home so can't craft :(

  4. Fabulous card , love these images.
