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!

Witchy Kitty

Hi everyone. Guess what? I am a new DT member for Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog! How exciting is that? I am just so amazed at all the wonderful creations I have seen everyone making. So much inspiration that I decided to apply to a few DT calls myself.  If you aren't on one and you have been thinking about it, don't be afraid to apply! It is such a great way to learn and grow as a card maker plus you can meet some pretty awesome people.  Ok, enough of me gushing about how awesome I think it is to be on a design team and on to the new challenge.  Our current theme is Halloween. So head on over and join us with your Halloween creations to be entered in the drawing for some cool prizes! Here is my DT card to provide a bit of inspiration ( I hope) for you!

I used the cat on a broom image from Floppy Lattes Digital Designs for this cute Halloween themed card.  I colored the image with my promarkers and inked around the image. Paper and ribbon were used from my stash.  I used a gel glitter pen on the witch hat and on the witching hour part of the sentiment.  Some sparkle was added with the orange gems.  I'm not sure where I got the sentiment from as I was a bit clueless on labeling my digital images as I got them. I followed the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches for the card layout.   I really hope you enjoy my first creation as part of the Glitter n Sparkle design team. Head on over for more inspiration from my team mates!
