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!

Pumpkin Pickles

Hello again! My second post for the day. I saw this adorable image from Lacy Sunshine and just had to have him.  How cute is he? I colored him with my promarkers.  I followed the sketch from From the heart stamps for the card layout.  I used paper from my stash.  There is some stitching on the orange ribbon at the top and I did my first hand stitching around Pickles.  I added some cute pumpkin ribbon at the bottom and a party sentiment.  The bats are punched from an EK success punch.
