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.

Lupin and Butterflies

Good morning

The other day I posted a card I had made with one of the images I had won when I entered a Eureka Challenge, this is the other image I chose.  It is called Butterfly and Bluebonnet from Eureka Stamps (In the UK these pretty flowers are known as lupins.)

I coloured it with Promarkers and mounted it on pearlescent card.  The background paper is by Papermania and the sentiment from Craftwork Cards.  I cut the butterfly from more pearlescent card using Memory Box dies, the flourish die is Marianne Designs one.  The rosette die is the Tim Holtz one.  The two tone ribbon is from the lovely Really Reasonable Ribbon people.


I am entering this card in the following Challenges:

Digi Haven - Fun with Flowers
Eureka Stamps - Anything Goes Challenge # 44
RRR Challenge - 'I'm Seeing Dots & Ribbon' Theme #74


  1. Great card, I love the pink and blue color combo

    Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog

    Happy Friday!


  2. What a pretty stamp and beautifully coloured by you. Love those ribbons and spotty paper. This would be great for the current RRR challenge x

  3. Such a great card this one, Dionne. This card makes me think of my grandparents and their front garden because of the Lupin flowers. Love the colour palette and the rosette you used as well.
