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.

And the Choir Sings Out

Phew!   I had forgotten that trying to think of something different to say every day is hard work because before the end of November I had not posted anything for such a long time.  Thank you so much for sticking with me.

Another of my new House-Mouse stamps today, this one is called 'Angel Mice'.  I have often wondered what these two might be singing.  I coloured them with my polychromos pencils and mounted it on gold card.  I added a few red flat backed gems to the holly berries.

The snowflake die is from Cheery Lynn and the poinsettia flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The backing paper is from a 'Me to You' paper pad, the rest is from my stash.



  1. The photo doesn't do this card justice. The detail, colours and layering are so pretty and,as always, perfectly done. So happy to have received this, thank you x

    1. I know, my photographic skills really suck .... and they are getting worse. The afternoon I photographed all of my Christmas cards was very overcast and the room was dark, what a disaster.

      I am so pleased that you liked the card.

      Dionne xx
