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

Good morning and welcome to my blog.

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.



  1. Hi Dionne
    Oh WOW, another beauty! Love this shape card. Such a brilliant image, gorgeous colouring in and that striking red colour speaks for itself again. Real eye catcher! Beautiful metal embellishments and those tickets go so well with the image.
    I am looking forward to another card from you today but please do not over exhaust yourself or cause yourself some kind of craft related injury because of it. I hope you are not crafting in your sleep too (LOL).
