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.

Belle of the Ball


It's Friday and the weekend is about to start, yes!

I have a birthday card to share with you today, I mentioned yesterday that we were recently invited to an Alice in Wonderland themed party.  We had a fantastic time and we spent a lot of time spotting all of the Alice themed decorations all around the house and garden.  Lots of tasty food and there were also three fabulous themed cakes - Mad Hatter's Tea Party, White Rabbit and Queen of Hearts and loads of lovely cup cakes.

My Alice is by Mo Manning, I coloured her with Promarkers and mounted the image on blue card. The cup cake paper is one of Lucy Cromwell designs from Papermania.  I added some flat backed pearls, a sentiment and a tiny White Rabbit charm.

Have a great weekend.



  1. Hi Dionne
    Don't mention cakes, you are making my taste buds going and I have nothing sweet in the house (LOL).
    Love the card you made.... just beautiful.

  2. What a lovely image and fabby backing paper. I was peering at it trying to see if it was cake and so pleased to read that it was! The charm finishes it off a treat.xx

  3. Beautiful card with wonderful colouring. Love the design paper. Sounds like the birthday was lots of fun.
