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.

Another Six Christmas Cards

I am back with a second post today to share a few more of this year's Christmas cards.

Regulars would have heard this all before, but for anyone visiting for the first time, I should explain that these are kit cards from Hunkydory (I cannot find the actual pack on their website to give you the link, the nearest I can get is their  Luxury Christmas Card Making Kit.)  Each kit contains everything you need to make the cards - printed card, main image, 2 sentiments, 2 tags, 2 decorative strips, an handmade by label, foam spacers and envelopes.

Things like twine, paper flowers and flat backed gems are all from my stash.  After these photographs were taken I went back and added Flower Soft Polar White to the snow and the white fur trims.  I also stamped a sentiment inside each card.

I enjoyed making these cards and was impressed with the quality of the Hunkydory kits.  Each on took me between 10 and 15 minutes to make.  They were a little smaller than I would have liked, but you know what it is like when you order something on-line.  All the same, I am very tempted to buy kits from Hunkydory again.



  1. Beautiful cards and toppers really love the last one with the snowy scene

  2. Thank you, I really like that last image as well. The tag on that last one says 'Driving Home for Christmas', so every time I see that card I hear Chris Rea in my head!

  3. Another fabulous set. This really is a great kit and seems to have something for everyone. X

    1. Thank you. I think your card is in this set, it was a little more fancy than the other one.
