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.

Chicky Pip 2014

It is a wet and miserable day here today, the weather is so changeable at the moment.  I thought that the weather today called for a bright and cheerful card.

The current challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges is Easter and I have made another Easter card to share with you today.

This image is another one of Sugar Nellie's Home Grown digital Sherbet Pip stamps, this one is called Chicky Pip. I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it on silver mirri and blue Centura Pearl card.

The gorgeous flower is by Petaloo and the backing paper, picket fence and butterfly are all from my stash.  Oh yes, they are real chocolate mini eggs!

  1. I so hoped they were real chocolate and you didn't let me down!!! Love this card - the image is so cute and I love that statement flower with the butterfly. We had rain too and guess what - water coming in where the roof was fixed :( xx
