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.

Putting the Icing on the Gingerbread Man

Another of my House-Mouse stamps today, this one is called 'Finishing Touches'.  I used my polychromos pencils to colour the image and then I mounted it on gold card.

The backing paper comes from a Dovecraft paper stack called 'Winter Blooms'.  The sentiment came from a 'Me to You' stack.

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and the snowflake die is by Cheery Lynn.



  1. This is such a fun image. I love those backing papers and how you have combined them x

    1. Ha ha, thank you. The backing paper was one of those happy accidents, I originally used just the poinsettia paper but it was overpowering, so I toned it down with the tartan one.
