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.

Pretty Poppy

I know what you'r thinking, not more poppies.  The trouble is I have so many poppy stamps and digi images, I just love their rich red colours and the fact that poppies also come in virtually every other colour too.

This card features another free colouring book page from Super Colouring, which I coloured with Promarkers.  I mounted it on silver mirri and white card, I then added a layer of red glitter card and some embossed white card.

The red flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts (apologies for the poor quality photograph but here it is in close-up) and the sentiment from CraftWork Cards.  The berries, buttons and ribbon all came from my stash.



  1. Beautiful Dionne! Love the glittery paper and the little buttons! It's never too much of a thing, if it's something that YOU enjoy and we like seeing whatever you create so do what makes you happy!! hugs :)

    1. Thank you Pamellia, I may well hold you to that!

  3. Another stunner. Love all the red trimmings - the ribbon with the flower is particularly beautiful and the glittery card sets everything off perfectly. xx
