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.

Christmas Baubles

I am still playing catch up posting my Christmas cards.  Only a couple to go now.

This is however a very brief post, not much to say about this CAS card.

Another House Mouse stamp, this one is called 'Balancing Act', after colouring it with F&C polychromos pencils I mounted it on some silver mirri card.  The Christmas lights came printed on the backing papers, which is from a House Mouse CD.

I hope you have a lovely weekend.



  1. Great CAS card and cute image-perfect B.paper too
