Welcome


Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. I am married to a very understanding man. Thank goodness he is because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting.


I would love it if you would follow me and leave comments, as I would like to know what you think of my work.


Please check back as I shall be adding more projects soon.


Thank you for visiting my blog.

Daffodil Pip 2014

Good morning

I have another Easter card to share with you today.


This image is another one of Sugar Nellie's Home Grown digital Sherbet Pip stamps, this one is called Daffodil Pip. Once I had coloured the image with Promarkers, I mounted it on silver mirri and purple Centura Pearl card.

The papers, ribbon, and little bee charm are all from my stash and the little Easter eggs are real chocolate mini eggs.

Happy Easter.

Twinkle, Twinkle

Hi, I hope you had a great weekend.

It's a new week and a new challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges.  It is my turn to host the challenge and, because there is something of the magpie about me, I am asking you to show us some sparkle on your projects for the next two weeks.  It could be glitter, gems, mirri card, gilding flakes, in fact, anything with a reflective surface.

I do not think any of my cards escape without a little bit of sparkle and today I have a card in a box to share with you.  I really like this style of card, although they take me a lot longer to make, but I think that they are worth it.  I love the dimension and the sense of movement that they have.


I cut all of the hearts from glitter card using a Sissix Bigz die.  I used a combination of light pink, dark pink, red and white glittered cards.


The box panels are covered with even more glittered card and some silver mirri card.  The final touches were some pretty pink ribbon and a heart shaped gem.

I am looking forward to seeing your sparkling projects.  In the meantime, please hop across to the Crafty Boots Challenges blog to see all of the wonderful projects the rest of the Design Team have made.

Good luck.

A Little Chocolate Pip

Good morning

I have another Easter card to share with you today.

You may think you are having deja vu because I posted a card with this image earlier this week.  Regular visitors to my blog will recall that I have set myself a personal challenge whilst making my Easter cards this year.  Like most crafters I never throw anything away and I have a big folder of images that over the years I have printed but never used,  I also have an even bigger folder of papers left over from other projects.   So, I set myself a challenge to use up some of my 'spare' images and paper and this is why you have seen this image before.


This image is one of Sugar Nellie's Home Grown digital Sherbet Pip stamps, it is called Chocolate Pip. I coloured the image with Promarkers and Wink of Stella pens and then I mounted it on gold mirri card.  Everything else has come from my stash.

The flower were made with a Martha Stewart 'Hydrangea' punch and the butterfly is a Stampin' Up die.

Thank you for dropping by today.

Chicky Pip 2014

It is a wet and miserable day here today, the weather is so changeable at the moment.  I thought that the weather today called for a bright and cheerful card.

The current challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges is Easter and I have made another Easter card to share with you today.


This image is another one of Sugar Nellie's Home Grown digital Sherbet Pip stamps, this one is called Chicky Pip. I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it on silver mirri and blue Centura Pearl card.

The gorgeous flower is by Petaloo and the backing paper, picket fence and butterfly are all from my stash.  Oh yes, they are real chocolate mini eggs!
