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!

Hey everybody! It's Sunday again and time for a new at challenge at Challenges4everybody. As always anything goes so head on over to enter and play along with us for a chance to win. Our sponsor for this challenge is Oak Pond Creations. They have generously offered 3 digis to the winner of our challenge. And remember ANYTHING GOES so what are you waiting for? Here is my card featuring Otiz the wizard. For more inspiration head here and check out what my team mates have created for you!

I fussy cut Otis and colored him in with my promarkers.  I think I am finally getting the hang of fussy cutting. It still hurts my hands though! I used papers from my stash.  Peals were added in the upper left corner and a sentiment in the right. I have him sitting on some ribbon! I followed the sketch at Crazy Challenge for my card layout. I hope you like him.
