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.

Flower of the Holy Night

I have another of my gold cards to share with you today.  This one features a Stampin' Up stamp of a poinsettia - did you know that it is sometimes called the Flower of the Holy Night?  I stumbled across this little bit of information on the internet a few days ago.

I stamped the image onto some linen effect card several, using gold ink.  I then cut out the flower following the different layers.  I curled the leaves and used some glue gel to layer up my flower.  I then embossed some white card and layered it with gold mirri card.  Finally I added some red flat backed gems to the centre of the flower.
