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 Owl

Hi everyone! I have another owl Halloween for you today! I just love owls! This is another stamp from the Halloween kit that I got from Archivers awhile back. Anytime I see an owl stamp I have to buy it. I might be slightly obsessed, I know.  All the papers came in the kit. I love the bat and spider web paper. I inked the edges with black ink.  I stamped and paper pieced the owl.  Orange stickles are on the hat and the eyes.  The sentiment was stamped from the kit.  I added some purple gems and twine from my stash because I must add bling to my cards.  It doesn't feel finished without it.  I am hoping this dries quickly so I can pop it in the mail today. Who's excited for Halloween tomorrow??
