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.

The Last Six Christmas Cards

Second post of the day.

As it is Christmas Eve, I thought I should make sure the last of my Christmas cards are posted today.  I say the last but I actually made a lot more cards then those you have seen but, as I bought several packs of the same kit cards this years there were 6 of each design and I did not want to send you to sleep looking at the same images over and over.

These kit cards came from Hunkydory  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, gems and the wooden reindeer and Santa charms 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.

Elvin the Elf on the Shelf is busy packing his bags because it is time for him to go home and report to Santa. So, it is time to say goodbye to Elvin, he has grabbed his plain hat for tomorrow and has to go home now and help Santa.  Bye Elvin, it has been fun seeing you in your various outfits.

I suspect you may be a little busy over the next few days and you will have better things to do than visiting my blog, so I should like to take this opportunity to wish you, and your family, a very happy Christmas and New Year.  Call again soon.
