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.

Butterfly Fairy


The weather here today has been so mixed, stormy, overcast, drizzle and sunshine.  It's one of those days when you know it is going to end in a headache.  But nothing lifts the spirit quite like crafting.

The theme of the current Crafty Boots Challenge is 'Pink Butterflies' and this little lady, from A Day for Daisies, is called Butterfly Fairy.

After colouring the image with Promarkers I added glitter to the wings and mounted it on pearlescent card.  The background paper is by Papermania and the sentiment from Craftwork Cards.  I cut the butterflies from more pearlescent card using Memory Box dies and the ribbon is from the lovely Really Reasonable Ribbon people.

Enjoy the rest of your day.



  1. Fabulous colour combination and the glitter on the wings is superb. Love the background paper and matching bow. Another beauty!

  2. Gorgeous card, I love the glitter you've added to her wings.

    Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog

    Happy Friday!


  3. Beautiful birthday card, Dionne. Love the subtle colour palette and the image you used as well.
