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.

Baby Fairy

Friday at last!  Over at Crafty Boots Challenges the current challenge is 'Flowers'.  I find that flowers tend to feature rather heavily in my crafting, just like in this card.

This adorable little creature is one of Mo Manning's Baby Fairies.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and added a touch of glitter to the fairy wings.  The papers and buttons are from my stash.

I hope you have a good weekend.
