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.

Mariko is Back

Thank you for dropping by today, I look forward to your visits.

As you know, the current challenge at Crafty Boots is to use a sentiment.  I have a craft box full of handy sentiments, so no problem!

The card I would like to share with you today is from Mo's Digital Pencil and is called 'Mariko is Mad'.  I just adore that sulky look on her face and I am sure I have seen it dozens of times on my sisters face when we were growing up!

After colouring the image with my Promarkers I mounted it on some gold mirri and pumpkin orange card.

The paper came from a K & Co paper stack by Tim Coffey.  The die cuts and Card Candy came from my stash.  The all important sentiment came from Craftwork Cards.

There is still loads of time for you to enter your projects in this Crafty Boots Challenge.

Good luck.
