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.

What, Another Year Older!


As we head for another Bank Holiday weekend in the UK I have a special birthday card to share with you today.

I made this card for a wonderful person and one of my very best friends, my sister.  As we grew up I saw this expression on her face more than once and as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make a card for her using the image.

The image is called Mariko is Mad and it is from Mo's Digital Pencil.  After colouring it with Promarkers I mounted it on gold mirri card and some papers from my stash.

I hope you have a fabulous weekend.

  1. That's a fabulous image - think that face could probably belong to me too!! That bling is superb. Hope she enjoys her birthday and have a great weekend. xx
