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.

Ice Cream and Pickles
Today I want to share another card that I have made with one of the Saturated Canary rubber stamps from the Crafty Boots store. I know that I am part of their Design Team and you would expect me to say this but I genuinely love working with these stamps, they are just so easy to colour.
I recently went to my very first Baby Shower and needed a suitable card, I am sure you will agree that this image was just perfect. I have combined it with the 'Rain or Shine' stamp set from Stampin' Up and a lot of glimmer paper.
I coloured the Ice Cream and Pickles rubber stamp with Promarkers and, as we know it is a girl, I also coloured some of my Stampin' Up silver Glimmer Paper with a pink Promarker - doesn't it look fab?
I stamped the umbrellas from the Rain or Shine stamp set with various coloured inks and then cut them out, I curved the umbrellas and affixed them with Pinflair Glue Gel so they were supported. Once the glue gel was dry I coated them with Glossy Accents. The Baby Shower stamp is also from the Rain or Shine stamp set.
Have a great weekend.
