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.

Gone Fishing


The weekend is almost here, I hope your week has been a good one.

Continuing my current sporting theme I have a slight variation on the theme today with a fishing image.

I decided on a tent fold card.  The polka dot paper is from a DoveCraft pack and the boarder is from a Messy Rabbit CD.

The image is a Sugar Nellie Home Grown Manga stamp called 'Tiny Tidler', which I coloured with Promarkers.  I mounted the image on silver card and some blue pearlescent card.  The sentiment is from Craftork Cards.

Over at Crafty Boots Challenges, we are celebrating the coming summer of sport, and in particular the World Cup, with a sporting challenge.  There is still time to enter your sporting project.

  1. Great card. That Messy Rabbit CD has some fabulous stuff on it. The border looks great with all the other elements and I love how you've used it along the top.xx
