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!

Who me?



How adorable is this smiling owls digital stamp? I saw this image at From the Heart Digital Stamps and just had to have it. I am a huge owl fan! I colored them with Promarkers.  All the paper and ribbon are from my stash.  I tried some new to me techniques with this card. I fussy cut around the owls.  I have to admit this is the best I have ever done with that.  Am I the only one that gets hand cramps while doing it? I also used a Martha Stewart leaf punch and glued together some flowers.  So much easier to do than I thought and very pretty.  I colored some white pearls with my gold Promarker to match the flowers.  The sentiment is from a new clear sentiment set that was sent to me by a good friend. I really enjoyed making this card and am happy with the way it turned out.  I followed Sketch 32 from I heart card sketches for the card layout.

  16. I love how you used the sketch, and those papers are so cute!! I used to fussy cut a lot of stamped images on my hards, and I always got a hand cramp. :) Thanks for entering the DT call!
