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!

Friendship Card

Hi everyone! I recently purchased the Paper Pumpkin kit from Stampin' Up.  They were having a sale where you could get the kits for two months at $10 a piece instead of the normal $19.95. Perfect time for me to give it a try.  The kit came with card stock, designer paper, a small ink pad, acrylic block, the friend stamp and embellishments.  I put it all together and then decided to color and add a digital image from on of my favorite digital stamp companies Bugaboo Stamps. I colored the image with my Promarkers and added some glitter to the wings and hat with my gel glitter pen.  I love that pen. The easiest way for me to apply glitter and NOT get it all over the place.  I hope you enjoy this bright little card!
