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.

Three Christmas Trees
Last year I left making my Christmas cards to the last minute and I struggled to get them done in time to get them in the post. So this year, when I heard that we would be making Christmas cards ... a lot of Christmas cards, I jumped at the opportunity to go to one of Stephanie-Emma's Stampin' Up Workshops.
This is the first card we made.
As with all of the cards we made that day, we made ten of this very sweet design. I punched each tree from card of three different shades of green and then I stamped 'Merry Christmas' under the row of trees. It is a very simple design but, I think you will agree, it is very effective.
I will share the rest of the cards with you over the next few days.
