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.

Regular visitors to my blog will know that we have a new baby in the family and last Monday I shared one of the cards I made with you.
Today I have a second New Baby card to show you, I made this one for the very proud grandparents.
The image is one of Mo Mannings, from Mo's Digital Pencil, the image is called Babygirl S.
I coloured it with my Promarkers and the papers are from my stash. The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and in truth, I cannot remember where I got the teddy bear charm from.
Over at Crafty Boots Challenges the current theme is celebrations, why not pop over there and join in the celebrations by adding your latest creations.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
I am almost bursting with excitement today. A new challenge starts today at Crafty Boots Challenges and I have been given the privilege of selecting the theme, after a lot of umming and ahhing, I chose 'Celebrations' - birthdays, anniversaries, births, a new home, in fact anything you might celebrate.
A new generation is establishing itself in our family and this week we welcomed the latest addition, the beautiful Erica Rose and I have made a card celebrating her arrival.
This touching image of mother and child is from Saturated Canary and is called New Baby.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Eureka Stamps - Pregnancy or Baby Card
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Lots of Layers

Whatever happened to all the fabulous weather we had last weekend? I am feeling distinctly chilly today.
I have been playing with some of the MelJen stamps which are available from the Crafty Boots store, this range of stamps are new to me but the images were just what I wanted for my young nephew's birthday card.
This particular stamp is called Turtles Friend.

Crafty Boots Challenges have launched a new challenge today, Anything Goes - provided it includes a stamped image.
I have used one of the new Saturated Canary rubber stamp range from the Crafty Boots on-line store. This lovely design is called Gardener Gayle and I could not resist including I whole hedge of roses.
The image is mounted on silver Glimmer Paper from Stampin' Up and the backing paper is from a Papermania stack. The Happy Birthday sentiment is also from Stampin' Up as is the ribbon. I am sure you have spotted that the roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I have been admiring the fabulous projects the rest of the Design Team have made, why not take a peek for yourself and don't forget to enter your own work into the Challenge.

Today I want to share another card that I have made with one of the Saturated Canary rubber stamps from the Crafty Boots store. I know that I am part of their Design Team and you would expect me to say this but I genuinely love working with these stamps, they are just so easy to colour.
I recently went to my very first Baby Shower and needed a suitable card, I am sure you will agree that this image was just perfect. I have combined it with the 'Rain or Shine' stamp set from Stampin' Up and a lot of glimmer paper.
I coloured the Ice Cream and Pickles rubber stamp with Promarkers and, as we know it is a girl, I also coloured some of my Stampin' Up silver Glimmer Paper with a pink Promarker - doesn't it look fab?
I stamped the umbrellas from the Rain or Shine stamp set with various coloured inks and then cut them out, I curved the umbrellas and affixed them with Pinflair Glue Gel so they were supported. Once the glue gel was dry I coated them with Glossy Accents. The Baby Shower stamp is also from the Rain or Shine stamp set.
Have a great weekend.

I knew I needed a card for a male friend for this week and, to be honest with you, I thought I had one. But, when I checked the only male cards I had were for sportsmen, one of a lad playing football and the other one playing golf, and this friend is not into sport.
I had to get the my card into the post and did not have a lot of time to make a card. So I set about making a very simple, quick card and this is it, not bad for the amount of time I spent making it!

I have been tidying my blog and discovered that I had forgotten to post these pages from a wedding scrapbook I made to celebrate the wedding of the daughter of a dear friend. How could I have forgotten to publish these pages? Everything was completed but just sitting in draft, my apologies for the delay.
I did not want to publish any of the pages containing personal information, and there were quite a lot of those, so these are only a few of the pages from the album.
