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.

Postbox with Robins

A quick post today as everything is getting a bit hectic with the big day getting so close.  It is also the shortest day today, not that you would notice, the days around here recently have been so dark and overcast.

As most of you will know the current challenge over at Crafty Boots Challenges is 'Winter Wonderland'.  These little robins may not be covered in snow but there is something about their gorgeous plumage that says winter to me.

This card features one of Teri Shermn's gorgeous digital images, this one is called 'Jolly Holly Postbox'.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and then mounted it on gold mirri.  I embossed the whote card with Christmas trees and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.  The backing paper and snowy ribbon are both from my stash.

Don't forget to enter your wintery projects into this Crafty Boots Challenge.

Good luck.

    1. Thank you so much Carol. The B paper was a little bit I had left over from another card but it was too good to throw away.

      Hope you are having a great Christmas.
