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.

Every Blessing

I honestly thought that I had made enough Christmas cards during the course of the year but once I started writing them I realised that I was not just one or two cards short but about 40!

So I set to making a card with a fairly basic design, which I could make relatively quickly.  Of course the boredom factor started to creep in and there were quite a few deviations from the general theme.  Here are one or two of them ........

The basic card features Stampin' Up's Every Blessing stamp in Cherry Cobbler stamped on a linen effect card, layered onto the matching coloured card.  The sentiment stamp is also Stampin' Up.  Each card had a red flat backed gem in the centre of the star.



  1. These are simply stunning, just perfect. I love the choice of colour. Happy New Year xx

    1. Thank you Lisette, it was a bit of a mad race to get my cards in the post yet again this year. I must try harder next year.
