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 2

Good morning

Thank you for dropping by and a very big thank you to all of you who leave such kind and generous comments on my work, I really do appreciate it.

I have a few more Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) to share with you this morning, probably the last for a while as I really must start making a few Christmas cards, I simply cannot put it off any longer.

This set features more fabulous roses and charms  from Wild Orchid Crafts.

This time I cut 3.5 inch by 2.5 inch cards from white coloured glittered card.  I then added some very pale lavender organza ribbon.

Next I decorated each card with a selection of lilac and purple roses and added charms ..............

On the reverse of each card I print the name of the set and the individual number of each card.  The date and my contact details.

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

  1. So very, very pretty! For someone who hadn't made ATCs in ages you are rocking them now! Truly gorgeous!

  2. Another beautiful set Dionne and a gorgeous colour pallette. For me it's the one with the heart, hearts are my thing, the red really gives a fabulous pop of colour. Where do you get your glitter card? I've only ever found small quantities and you have inspired me to buy bigger.

  3. Dionne, these are gorgeous! Love the flowers, and the charms are sweet as can be. Thanks for visiting my blog today. Happy Crafting!
