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.

Christmas Carolers

We have reached the midway point for the current Crafty Boots Challenge.  The theme of this challenge is 'Snow and Sparkle', most of my cards have at least a little glitter or glitz and at the moment an awful lot of them also feature snow.  So, for me, this is not a difficult challenge.

My card today features the Delicious Doodles image 'Frozen Fountain'.  I coloured the image with my F&C polychromos pencils and added glitter to the frozen fountain.  I then mounted the image on silver miri card and some silver coloured glitter card.  The musical paper is from Dovecraft and the sentiment stamp is from Stampin' Up.  And finally, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

We have three very talented Guest Designers joining the team for this Challenge, don't forget to pop across the the website and check out their work.



  1. Gorgeous, gorgeous glitteriness - the fountain looks magical and the image could be a photograph. Great card. xx

    1. Thank you Lisette, these Delicious Doodle images are so easy to colour, I just love working with them .... and they seem to be publishing more weekly.
