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.

Traditional Robin Christmas Cards

Here are some more of the cards I have made this year by using Hunkydory toppers with matching papers and inserts.   I just added some glitter card, ribbon and papers from my stash to complete the look.

This set features the much loved traditional European Robin and I should confess straight away that my indoor photography does not do this set justice, the background blue is much more stunning in reality.

The Robin is a huge favourite of my husband and only last weekend had one quite literally eating out of his hand.  Therefore, I always try to make sure that his Christmas card features a robin.



  1. Beautiful cards and love the Robin images

    1. I really have not done the top two cards justice, the depth of blue in that sky is stunning, I wish I was able to show you... although I do have a soft spot for the bottom card, which without the shinny backing paper was a lot easier to photograph.

  2. Another superb set. The robin images are lovely and the background cards equally so. Phil used to be joined by a robin in the days when he gardened regularly, and would feed it worms. Then we have had a couple of years where they have nested in the garden and we have regular visitors to the bird feeder. I like to think it's different generations of the same family. Xx

  3. That is so sweet. Yesterday I saw an Amazon ad for a robin birds nest wich was actually a pottery tea pot. I was so tempted to buy it but I do wonder whether a robin would realy want to nest in a pottery tea pot complete with drainage holes.

    To be honest, I am still tempted.
