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.

Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee
Day 13 of my personal challenge to post a card every day for the duration of the current Crafty Boots Challenges, the theme of which is Children's Stories or Nursery Rhymes.
For the penultimate day of this challenge I have returned to Through the Looking Glass for my inspiration.
This jolly image of Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee is from Mo's Digital Pencil and is called Tweedle.
I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it on silver mirri and some red glitter card. I them made the stepper card and covered it in some cheerful paper with a bee motif from a Forever Friends stack. The tickets are by Ranger and the flowers and insect charms are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Although I have posted cards every day for almost two weeks I still have at least half a dozen children's images I have not shared with you yet and I hope to return this afternoon with at least one more card today.
There is still time for you to enter this Challenge, I would love to see your interpretation of this theme. Just go to Crafty Boots Challenges and join in the fun.
Thanks for dropping by, I really do appreciate your support and enjoy reading your comments.
