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 Herald

You could be forgiven for thinking that the current challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges is Christmas because all of my DT makes have been Christmas cards but that is just my way of getting a few more cards made, the theme is actually 'Music'.

Here is another of my cards.

My herald is the White Rabbit from Lewis Carroll's book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. This IndigoBlu stamp is not easy to colour, so instead I decided to highlight some of the features by adding a little red glitter to it, then I layered it on gold mirri and red glitter card.

The sentiment is one of my favourites from Stampin' Up.



  1. Fabulous Dionne! Love the red glitter paper layered with the mirri gold, such a wonderful contrast in textures! I love that you added glitter to your image too! big hugs :)

  2. That's a wonderful Christmas card.
