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.

I am afraid that I am a bit late with my Design Team post for the new Challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges.  The theme for the next two weeks is Winter Wonderland.

Mo's Digital Pencil have some fabulous Christmas images but this is one of my favourites, it is called 'Winter Fairy Halla'.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and added a little glitter to her frosty breath. I then layered it with silver mirri and purple glitter card. I cut the fabulous snowflakes with a Bigz die and held the layers together with a clear gem brad. The backing paper is by Dovecraft and the sentiment is Papermania.  I recently bought some liquid applique and I used this to create a snow effect around her feet, however, I am not sure I like it and wish I had used Flower Soft now.

Don't forgot to take a look at the gorgeous projects created by my very talented Crafty Boots team mates.
