Welcome


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.

Fetching the Christmas Tree

I have another of my Christmas cards to share with you today ...........


This one features one of my House-Mouse stamps, the image is called 'Rockin Ride', I coloured it with my polychromos pencils and mounted the image on some distressed festive papers and glitter card.   I also added some flat backed gems to the tree and a couple to the features on the reindeer's face.



The backing papers are from a Dovecraft paper stack called Winter Blooms.  Finally, I coloured the white card with a red Promarker.
