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.

The current challenge, or should I say challenges, over at Crafty Boots Challenges have been inspired by this time of year, there is a choice of theme, either 'Autumn' or 'Halloween'.
Today I have an Halloween card to share with you.
I coloured a Prima Doll stamp with Promarkers and I made my own witches hat (between you and me, it looks a little better in real life than it has come out in the photo). I wanted to make the card all about the witch so I kept the background very plain and mounted it on some rich brown glitter card and added a sentiment and three tiny pumpkins.
The pumpkins are from real plants, I think they are seed pods of an exotic plant, these were a gift from my good friend Lisette, aka Mrs Beez. They are really amazing but I am afraid I have no idea what they are called.
There is still plenty of time for you to enter your favourite project in the Crafty Boots Challenge.
