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!

Save the Hooters

A very sweet woman that I know was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I made this card in hopes to maybe brighten her day a little.  I got this adorable digital image and sentiment at Whimsie Doodles. Isn't it cute? I found the pink designer paper while I was at AC Moore and knew if would be perfect for this card.  I used ribbon and rhinestones from my stash.  I colored in the image with my amazing Promarkers! I followed the sketch at Sunday Sketch and Stamp for the card layout. I hope that this card is adored by anyone who knows someone or has gone through this themselves! Big hugs and lots of love to all!

  11. I am so so sorry to hear about your friend, but I know it will be of great help to have such a supportive friend in her corner like you. Love what you've created here for her and your use of spooled items is perfect for our challenge. :)

    You read my mind. Just the other day I was telling a crafty buddy of mine
    that I thought dryer sheets should be the new 'cheesecloth' and here you go
    making a ribbon out of it...LOVE that tip and your steampunk owl tag is
    fantastic!!! Excellent use of spooled items as well. :)
