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.

After yesterdays marathon post, I thought that I would keep today's post short and sweet.

One of my favourite nieces recently announced her engagement to her long time partner.  This gave me the perfect opportunity to experiment with some of my newest dies.

The Champagne Glass die is from Marianne Designs Creatable Dies and the heart die is the Loveland Corner die from Memory Box  The blue pearlised paper, silver mirri and sentiment are all from my stash.

I hope you have a lovely weekend.



  1. Congratulations to your niece! Beautiful card, love the hints of blue. That heart die looks fabulous in silver mirri. xx

    1. Thank you, it's a fiddly die but well worth the effort.



Thank you for visiting my blog, I look forward to reading your feedback on my work. I hope you will visit again.
