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.

A Little Elf Called Katie

Thanks to the weekend most of us get to celebrate Christmas a little longer this year.  We have been out visiting family the last couple of days, so today we are enjoying a lazy day at home.  Yesterday it was the turn of my other sister and her husband.

My card today features another of my fabulous Delicious Doodles images, this one is called 'An Emo Christmas'.  I have a niece who gets to dress up on one day a year with her job, as it is Christmas she usually chooses the elf costume.  It seemed to me that this image was almost perfect for her, with one small problem. she is not really into the whole Emo thing.  So, I hope Teri Sherman forgives me for taking my air brush to her beautifully drawn image.

I coloured the image with my F&C polychromos pencils and then mounted it on gold miri card and red coloured glitter card.  The fabulous paper is from The Digi Rainbow and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.  I covered the fur trim with Flower Soft, Polar White.

A quick reminder that there is a special Christmas challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges entitled 'Snow and Sparkle'.



  1. Now this is just the sort of outfit I would love to wear over Christmas!! Great card and I think your airbrushing is just perfect xx

    1. Where Katie works they have Breakfast with Santa and she wears her elf outfit. Between the two of us, I have known her wear it when we have our family children's party as well.
