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.

Toffee Apple Time

A couple of weeks ago it was my friend Lisette's turn to pick the theme of the Crafty Boots Challenge, which was Sweet Treats.  I had planned to make several cards to post during the challenge but what with one thing and another it never happened, sorry Lisette.

This is one of the cards I had planned to make.

I came across the template for this toffee apple on Pintrest, which led me to Lynn Pratt's blog

After colouring the apple and the toffee part with Promarkets and sticking them together, I covered it all with Glossy Accents and put it aside to dry.  Once it was past the tacky stage I attached the lolly pop stick.

I do have a Halloween connection with this project, I intend to send it to my small nephew to invite him to help me carve pumpkins next week.  Must catch the post.



  1. I was full of anticipation when I saw the title of the post in the email notification and this far exceeds what I was expecting. This is scrumptious, love the effect of the glossy accents which makes the toffee look so real and the lolly stick just adds to the realism. You might know I love a toffee apple and this has made my mouth water for one! xxx

  2. Fantastic idea!

    Thank you so much for leaving a lovely comment on my blog

    Happy Crafting!
