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.

Manga Girl in Green

Good morning and welcome to my space.  It is a brand new week and time for a brand new Crafty Boots Challenge.  For the next two weeks we are looking for projects containing squares or which are square.

I have made a square card featuring Funky Kits 'Sugar Nellie Manga Girl # I'.  I coloured the stamped image with Promarkers and them cut the card into a square.  I then distressed the edges of the white card with Ranger's Vintage Photo.

I then cut several mats in silver mirri, yellow and lemon coloured card. The check backing paper is from a DoveCraft stash.  I made the sentiment on my computer.

The Design Team has been busy making cards to give you a few ideas, why not check them out on the Crafty Boots blog.

Have a great week.



  1. Love the zingy colours and great layout

  2. I love how you designed and arranged the background! Its awesome. The little girl image is so cute. The green goes well with the yellow.

    1. Thank you. I think I must have been channeling 'elf' when I coloured this stamp - either that or Robin Hood!
