About Me

My photo

Hi everyone! I am a veterinary technician living in NY who loves to pen pal and make cards in my spare time. I have never been good at crafts since I can barely draw a straight line with a ruler but I was determined to give it a go.  I love learning all the different techniques and ways to craft. Follow me on my journey as I grow as a card maker!

Challenge two for the Catch the Bug week long Christmas in July event was a sketch that I used for this card layout.  I used a super cute digi from Bugaboo stamps and colored her in with promarkers.  I used papers from my stash and some gingerbread men embellishments. The stampin up oval and scalloped oval punch was used on the sentiment.
