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 Cards

As you probably know by now, I was very late making my Christmas cards this year and, in order to get any cards made at all, I bought some of the fabulous matching toppers and designer papers from Hunkydory Crafts.  I just added some bits and bobs from my stash to come up with my own unique designs.  In order to keep each post manageable I decided the post a few cards every day.  

However, I have so many cards to share with you I shall be posting today and beyond Christmas.  I should apologise, these cards have a highly reflective surface and I had to turn then away from the camera in order to avoid the worst of the glare off the flash.

And one more for today, it does not quite fit with the rest but I thought it appropriate.

My very best wishes to you and your family and may you enjoy today in what ever way you can in these difficult times.
