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.

Sketch Challenge - White Roses

As you know, for the next two weeks at Crafty Boots Challenges we are asking you to give us your take on this sketch:

I have made a set of floral cards based on the sketch layout and on Monday I shared a card featuring lilies.  Today I have one with white roses.

I started with a sheet of white card, which I folded in two, I than attached some red glittered card. These fabulous roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts, as you can see I turned the sketch upside down for this card.

Don't forget tp check out the rest of the cards made by the rest Crafty Boots Challenges Design Team.



  1. The combination of white roses and the red glitter is stunning - ruby slippers meets Snow White - perfect! xx
