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.

With Deepest Sympathy

The current Crafty Boots Challenge is 'Remembrance' or 'Giving Thanks'.  I have a another sympathy card to share with you today.

It features a free colouring page from Super Colouring, which I coloured with Promarkers. I mounted the image on some deep red card and gold mirri. The background is black mirri card. I printed the sentiment on my computer.



  1. Lovely design for a difficult subject

  2. Very appropriate that your image came from super colouring because that is exactly what you did :) Love the black base and how the red gold and white lifts it. xx

    1. Thank you for your lovely comments. I do enjoy colouring the poppies, such vibrant colours.
