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.

Belated Birthday Card


I hope that you are enjoying the same fabulous weather as we are having at the moment, it is just too good to be indoors but I wanted to quickly post this belated birthday card.

I think this image is perfect for a late card and, because I was in a hurry today, I cheated and used a tag I already had and added it to so gold mirri card.

I made the tag by covering a blank white tag with Peacock Feathers, Squeezed Lemonade and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks.  The Mad Hatter and sentiment stamps are from the Alice II set which I purchased from IndigoBlu.  I coloured the stamp with Promarkers and added Glossy Accents to the watch face.

The Clock Face Charm was also from IndigoBlu.  I made the flower with a Spellbinder die.  Th ribbon, which matches the distress ink colours so well, is from the Really Reasonable Ribbon people.

I must dash to get this card in the post now!
