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.

Christmas Fairy Bea

Good morning

There are only a couple of days left to enter the current Crafty Boots Challenge - Christmas in July.  These two weeks seem to have flown by and, whilst I never managed to make a Christmas card a day, I did my best.

Today's card features another image from Teddy Bo & Co, this one is called 'Your Wish Will Come True'.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and added a touch of glitter to the wings and wand.  Then I mounted it on some purple glitter card.  The backing paper is by Kanban Crafts as are the snowflakes, the sentiment is from Little Clair and the Christmas Tree die is Memory Box.

Don't forget to enter your Christmas projects into the Craft Boots Challenge, you still have time.



  1. This is just delightful. Just love the hint of vintage here.
