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!

Show Your Santa

Catch The Bug Challenge Blog is having it's third annual blog hop Christmas in July event starting today. Head on over for some chances to win amazing prizes! Their fist challenge is Show Your Santa. I got this super cute Old World Santa from Bugaboo Stamps to use on the card.  I love their images. Great quality and very reasonable prices.  The owner is having a 50 % off Christmas in July Sale to go along with the event. Stock up on your Christmas images now! I know that I'm going to!   I used white flock on the hat and coat trim.  It was my first time using it.  I love the fuzzy feel it gives to the cards.  I shall be ordering different colors to use more often! I used papers that I got from Hobby Lobby and glitter ribbon from my stash.   The image is colored in with Promarkers.  The sentiment is punched using Stampin up oval and scalloped oval punches.
