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 Wise Man Christmas Cards

I am back again, third post of the day, with some more of the cards I have made this year by using Hunkydory toppers with matching papers and inserts.  I am painfully aware that you must be getting really bored of me by now!

Today I am showcasing my latest stepper card die.  It was not as big as I had hoped but I love the effect.  I was intending to make a lot more cards like this but I was under a lot of pressure to get my cards made and this took about four time longer to make than a straight forward A5 card.  So just the one this year ... maybe more next year.

Here's a side view ...

As I mentioned, the rest of this set became A5 cards, but these toppers are gorgeous, so luxurious.

I just added a bit of bling from my stash.

We have another glimps into the antics of Daisy the Elf ...

What has she been up to?

Oh look, she is using the empty wrapping paper rolls as stilts, what a good idea for hanging the lights ...

but what did she do with all of that wrapping paper?  Oh no, look at the sofa!



  1. The Wise Men cards are exquisite, so rich and luxurious and the stepper card was definitely worth it. Daisy's stilts are genius, as is the gift wrapped settee!!! X

    1. Thank you, I was very pleased with the stepper card die and come February I shall dust it off for next year.

      As for that settee, I like wrapping but even I would not tackle that job ... perhaps you need a little magic!

      A Merry Christmas to you and yours.

      Dionne xx
