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.

The Rose Garden - Set 1

I have more Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) to share with you today.  I have called this set The Rose Garden - Set 1.  I love this roses, which are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and I am sure that they will feature in a number of my ATCs in the future.

I cut 3.5 inch by 2.5 inch cards from champaign coloured glittered card.  I then added some green organza ribbon.

Next I decorated each card with a selection of red and white roses and charms ..............

If you would like to see the other ATCs I have recently made, they are as follows
