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.

Chocolate Pip 2014


Thank you for dropping by today, I really do appreciate your visits and when you leave a little comment it really does make my day.

This image is another one of Sugar Nellie's Home Grown digital Sherbet Pip stamps, this one is called Chocolate Pip. I coloured the image with Promarkers and Wink of Stella pens and then I mounted it on gold mirri card.

The papers are from DoveCraft and the butterfly dies are from Stampin' Up and Memory Box and the little Easter eggs are real chocolate mini eggs.

Please drop by again tomorrow.
