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.

Lily, Bo and Peep

Welcome one, welcome all.  I hope you are feeling well today.

The theme of the current Crafty Boots Challenge is 'Spring is in the Air' and what says spring more than baby lambs and chicks?

This cute little Saturated Canary is called 'Lily, Bo and Peep'.  After colouring this sweet trio with Promarkers I mounted it on some Real Red card and some matching paper from Stampin' Up.  The lovely tulip paper is from a stack by Tim Coffey for K & Company.

The pretty lilies are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment is by Craftwork Cards.

Have a good day.



  1. I am absolutely loving the combination of your beautifully coloured images with the SU papers. That tulip paper is fab and the bows the animals are wearing are soooo cute. xx

    1. Thank you, what a great combination Krista Smith and Tim Coffey.
