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.

Breast Cancer Awareness
This was another of those cards.
As you probably know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and I could not resist the freebees currently on offer from McMahon Five Designs.
I thought that these little cup cakes would be perfect for the 'Sweet Treat' challenge and, at the same time, I could do my bit to raise awareness of breast cancer.
Th toppers are pre-coloured, so the cards are very quick to make. I mounted the topper on silver mirri and added a doily to my pink pearlised background card. Finally I added a pink bow.
I am off to make some more of these cards like this to send to friends and family.
