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.

Minni Mouse

I have another card for you today featuring one of the nations favourite mice .., Minnie Mouse.

The current challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges is 'Spots and Dots' and I have adored colouring these Minni Mouse images, with her fabulous red and white polka dot outfit.

I found this free colouring page on Colouring Book and I coloured it with Promarkers.

I mounted the image on some red glitter card.  The red and black polka dot paper came from Bearly Mine.  I layered this with some gold mirri and I added a round Craftwork Cards sentiment.  The gorgeous red polka dot grosgrain ribbon came from my stash.

Don't forget to check out the Crafty Boots Challenges blog and take a look at the projects done by the other members of the Design Team.
