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 have gone for a bit of a steampunk look with this card. I painted some card bronze using acrylic paint, once it was dry, I used a mask to add some textured glitter paste to give it that brick wall effect. I then cut the bee using my Sizzix layered Bigz dies (the ones with the texture fades embossing folder) and decorated it with some chunky glitter. I added a few cog wheels and flat backed gems for good measure.
