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 just do not know where this week has gone, it really has flown by.  However, I have spent a lot of this week tinkering with my current project, but more of that later.

The current Crafty Boots Challenge is based on a sketch.  When I first saw the sketch I could not think how I would come up with  suitable project, but slowly I started to have ideas.  Last week I shared two twinchie canvasses and Monday a birthday card.  Last weekend I also made a series of postcards based on the sketch.

On Monday you saw 6 of the postcard designs I came up with, but I actually made quite a few more.  Here are the six which appeared on the Crafty Boots Challenges site.

The concept was pretty simple really - think of a round object, find a free image in the internet, print 2 or 3 copies of the image.  Cut some white card, cut some slightly larger pieces of coloured card.  Colour the white card with distress inks.  Cut the images out and decoupage them.  Add either two pieces of washie tape or ribbon, and/or sentiment.

 I mentioned that I made more of these cards, 10 more in fact, I just did not seem to be able to stop myself!  I have also tinkered with them all a little since then - so now I need to photograph them again.

If I have time I will post the rest of the cards this afternoon, but be warned it is going to be a VERY photo heavy post.



  1. These are fabulous. I like sketches though I do tend to turn them upside down or flip them. Take care Zo xx
