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!

Princess Fairy

How cute is this princess fairy from Bugaboo Stamps? I know a sweet little girl who loves princesses and fairies so I knew this was the perfect image to use on her birthday card.  I incorporated her favorite pinks and purples with paper from my stash. She is colored in with promarkers. I used a jelly roll glitter pen to add some sparkle to her wand, wings, and crown.  The little gems and pearls are so cute. I had to include them. I decided to play with my vagabond a bit and made a flower to put on the side of the card. It was hard to piece in the pink parts of the flowers but I made it work. The card layout is from a sketch by Try Stampin on Tuesday.  Happy birthday Emily!
