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.

Thoughts and Prayers

Today is your last chance to play long with the current Crafty Boots Challenge - 'Use a Sentiment'.  In fact there are just a few short hours.

My final DT card for this challenge features a Bugaboo block stamp entitled 'Thoughts and Prayers'.

After colouring the flowers with Promarkers I mounted the block image on black card and a white pre-cut scalloped edged card from Craftwork Cards.  I also printed a deepest sympathy sentiment on my computer and mounted that on black card.

Back here tomorrow morning for the next Crafty Boots challenge.

Enjoy your Sunday.



  1. I love how you have coloured this - so subtle and pretty, perfect for the sentiment. xx

    1. Thank you for those lovely comments Lisette. I had a definite idea of how I wanted to colour this but I found that the petals are not 'quite right' when you get into the detail, made some of the colouring difficult .... but interesting.

  2. This is a wonderful card. The colors are perfect for a "sympathy card" because it is meant to soothe and comfort something in a time of need.


Thank you for visiting my blog, I look forward to reading your feedback on my work. I hope you will visit again.
