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.

Making a List

Good morning

Another busy day today so a quick post before I get on with it.

I have my final card from the Stampin' Up Workshops run by Stephanie-Emma.  I had a wonderful time and I made 60 cards in all, it was hard work but I had such a wonderful time.

Have you noticed that each card seems to be getting more and more complex?  I love this card.  I started by  stamping this really jolly Father Christmas image on to the white card using gold ink.  Next, I cut a circle from it on the Big Shot, I also cut another circle in red card, slightly larger than the white one.

Then I cut a white mat of card and added the chevron of paper, next I stamped the sentiment - using two different colours.  Finally, I stuck the topper onto the card.

When I got home I made two more cards from the left over pieces in my bag.

Right, I must get on.



  1. super super cute! Love how easy Stampin Up makes Christmas cards! Thanks for the sweet comment you left on my blog!

  2. They all look fabulous - I love that Santa stamp - maybe I need to get it before they discontinue it! Loving the washi tapes too. xx
