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.

Crafty Boots Challenges is currently celebrating the long awaited arrival of 'Spring' and we are really enjoying all of your Easter cards and cards with flowers.

I have a one of my favourite stamps to share with you today, I am a big fan of the Sherbet Pips stamps from Sugar Nellies.  This one is called 'Posy Pip'.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it on pearlescent card.

The papers are all Dovecraft and the sentiment ladybird and ribbon came from my stash.

I hope you have a good Wednesday.



  1. This is just lovely. The colours are so rich and that ladybird clip is fabulous. xx

    1. Thank you, I love the Sherbet Pips range, they are all really cute. I must dig out a few more stamps and give them an airing.
