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.

Going Green

Good morning, I hope today finds you well.

We have a new challenge starting at Crafty Boots Challenges today. The theme for the next two weeks is 'Green' and it was chosen by dear friend and teamie, the very talented Lisette.

Lisette would like you to show her your green projects or, if you prefer, something with a St Patrick's Day design.

In England not many people send St Patrick's Day cards so  I decided to make a green card.

I love this Stampin' Up Swallowtail Butterfly stamp, it is so versatile.

I stamped it twice and cut one copy out and stuck one wing down and lifted the other up to give the impression that the butterfly is leaving the card.  I then mounted the butterfly on gold and matching green card.

The rest of the Design Team have been very busy making projects to inspire you, please take a look at the Crafty Boots Challenges page and good luck with your entries.
