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.

Thistles and Butterflies

Good morning

This morning I have another Pink Butterfly themed card to share with you.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it on pearlescent card.  The background paper is by Papermania and the sentiment from Kanban Crafts.  The ribbon is from the Really Reasonable Ribbon people and the rosette die is the Tim Holtz one.

There is still time for you to enter your pink butterfly creations into the Craft Boots Challenges.


I am entering this card in the following Challenges:
