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.

Jolly Pink

I think I may have mentioned once or twice that we have recently been blessed with a small handful of little girls born into the family.

Here is the card I made for another of my nieces and her husband to welcome their beautiful baby daughter, Mary.

This cute toy Giraffe is from Teddy Bo & Co and is called 'Jolly the G ..... Jiraffe!'  After colouring him with Promarkers, I mounted it on some gold mirri and pink pearlescent card.  The backing papers are from a Forever Friends, new baby stack.  The sentiment stamp is from Stampin' Up.

Of course, I did not go empty handed when I visited, I took a couple of tiny cardigans for the new baby.

One in pink....

and one in white.

This card fits in perfectly with the current Crafty Boots Challenge, which is to use pink in your project.



  1. Another image that looks fabulous in pink, love Jolly G! The pink with gold looks gorgeous and how cute are those cardi's? xx

    1. Thank you Lisette, I really enjoyed ding Jolly in pink, but I think he would work in any colour.


  2. So sweet, a really lovely card, great knitting too
