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.

A Quacking Good Card

At the moment I have a bit of a problem, my printer is attached to an old desktop PC, which has packed up.  I know there has to be a way to connect the printer to my laptop, so I can print my digi images, but I do not know how.  I have tried everything I can think of but they are not 'talking' to one another.  Until I have that eureka moment I am resorting to using up some of the pre-coloured images from kits I have been hoarding for ages. 

This card was made using an old Hunkydory kit.  The sentiment and pearls are from my stash.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

    1. I am so pleased you are feeling better, the cooler temperatures must help a bit.

      I have been trying to get my printer problem sorted out for ages. To be honest, I naively thought that I could just wire them together they would some how work, but they did not and I cannot find a handbook.

      Thank you for your lovely comments on the cards, when these pre-coloured images come with frames, they get too high when you mount them up and then that causes problems with the post, so I keep them flat by setting the frames at angles.

  2. So frustrating about your printer but, on the plus side, we get to see all these fabulous images and papers. This is a fabulous set and brilliant composition that works so well with that image.

    1. Hello Lisette, thank you for your comments.

      The more I use this set, the more in love with it I become - if only it were not an old set, otherwise I would try to buy it again! So much for using things up, te he.
