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.

Gold Star

A pinch and a punch it's the first of the month, is something we said when I was a child - and being children we followed it up with a pinch and a punch.  However there was a second line to the rhyme, a pinch and a kick for  being so quick!

The current Crafty Boots challenge is to use gold and/or silver in your project and I have another gold card to share with you today.

This card features one of the Stampin' Up star stamps, which I stamped with gold ink onto some white linen effect card, I then cut it out and layered it onto some gold mirri card.  I then cut three strips of the mirri card, one I left plain, another I layered some gold glitter card onto and the third I covered in some chunky glitter.  I embossed some white card and layered this onto some more gold mirri card.  I added a Stampin' Up sentiment and some flat backed gems.

There is still plenty of time for you to enter your gold and silver projects into this Crafty Boots Challenge.
