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.

Poppy Wreath

Good morning.

I thought that this birthday card was rather appropriate for today.  This fabulous poppy wreath image is from Delicious Doodles.

I coloured the wreath with my polychromos pencils and mounted it on gold miri card and red card.  The polka dot backing papers are from my stash, as is the die cut fairy.  The sentiment is a Craftwork Cards one.

Have a great day.



  1. Beautiful card Dionne and love the gorgeous poppy wreath very appropriate for today

  2. Beautiful card, the wreath is stunning and there's something quite haunting about the fairy. X

    1. Thank you Mrs Beez. Have you ever done something when you made a card and not really known why? Well, that was me and the fairy, I don't know why I put her there put it just seemed to be the thing to do, sort of tragedy and hope. I was disappointed with the colouring but the pencils would not cover well, I wondered if it had something to do with the card I had printed it on.

      I hope you have a good week
