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.

Silent Night

I want to thank all of my followers for their support and to thank you for all of the lovely comments you have left over this festive season.  Some of you may have noticed that I have not yet posted any of my Christmas cards.  I was a bit late making them this year and by the time they were finished I was already making two posts a day.  I thought that three posts a day would be too much for anyone to take.  So, now that our little elves have returned to the North Pole I thought I would dig out the photos of my Christmas cards and share them with you.

A few moths ago a close friend told me that he had taken I photo of his street when it had snowed the previous year and he was thinking that it might make a good Christmas card to send to their neighbours.  Of course, I jumped to offer my services .......

I made each card more or less the same, I just added some slightly different die cut embellishments to some.  I felt that this bronze glitter card really complimented the photograph and I added some contrast with this sliver metallic organza ribbon. 

The snowflake die is from Cheery Lynn and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

I also used the Craftwork Cards sentiment for this layout, I am afraid I cannot remember the make of the pine tree die. 

Finally the Tiny Pine Tree Branch die is from Marianne Designs.



  1. Beautiful cards! That background color is so warming.

    1. Thank you. It took me a while to come up with just the right colour for that background, it reminds me of warm brandy!

      Have a very happy New Year.

  2. These are fabulous, I hope she was pleased. The copper glitter is a perfect backdrop and I love the complimentary embellishments and the subtle variations. X

    1. Thank you for you lovely comments, I was quite pleased with the end result - so modest.

      Happy New Year.
