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.

Ho, Ho, Ho

Good morning

I have another of the cards I made at one of Stephanie-Emma's recent Stampin' Up Workshops to show you today.

I started this card by stamping this Father Christmas image in two colours (using pens) onto the white card.  Next, I cut it out using the Big Shot, I also cut a circle in red card.  Then I ran a white mat through the Big Shot in an embossing folder.

Finally, I stamped the 'Ho, ho, ho' sentiment and tucked it behind the red circle, then I used some washi tape and layered it all up.



  1. Love this :) The stamp looks great in two colours - does it take very long? The background reminds me of candy canes! xx

    1. Thanks Lisette. I did not take that long really.


  2. Absolutely delightful. Love the unusual colour combo.
