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.

I use a lot of ribbon on my cards so I thought I would do something a little different and raid my lace stash for a change.
This delightful image is from Delicious Doodles, it is called 'Harbour Scene', would be suitable for most men and even quite a few women. After colouring it with F&C polychromos pencils, I mounted it on some red and white card. I then embossed some more of the red card and used it to cover the front of an A5 card. The anchor and yacht charms are from my stash, as was the lace. The sentiment was from Kanban Crafts.
