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.

Blue Butterfly Baby


I hope you are well?

As my regular visitors know, my friends and family have been increasing the population recently.  It is wonderful to have all of these new babies around to fuss over and cuddle.  I have been busy with my knitting needles and making cards.

This little sweetie is Butterfly Baby from Saturated Canary.

I colored the image with Promarkers and layered it with gold mirri card, blue glitter card and papers from a Forever Friends stack.

The teddy charm and twine came from my stash.

I also knitted a couple of my favourite cardie patterns for our latest arrival but as mum and dad did not want to know his sex before he arrived I did both in white.

  1. Beautiful card - that image is so cute and that touch of glitter on the wings is perfect. Love the teddy charm too. The cardi's look great - can't believe you haven't been knitting forever! xxx
