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.

Jack and the Beanstalk
How is your Saturday going? In between making this card I have been washing and cooking lunch and making arrangements for this evening. As I worked I started to wonder how you spend your typical Saturday?
I was quite excited when I found this image because it was unexpected, some characters are more common than others, and Jack and his beanstalk were quite a find.
I must apologise for my bad photographic skills, the backing card I chose has a mirrored quality and it has caught the light up in the top left hand corner - the bottom right is a more realistic representation of the card, I hope it has not spoilt your view of the card.
You can find Jack and his Beanstalk at Mo's Digital Pencil, the image is called They Grow so Fast.
After colouring the image with Promarkers, I mounted it on silver mirri and dark green card. After fixing it to the shiny card I added some twine and a button. I then cut the swirls with Spellbinder dies and added the green gems. I also added a Craftwork Cards sentiment.
I will be back again in the morning with my final posting for this challenge.
