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!

Add a Tag DT

It's time for a new challenge at Glitter and Sparkle.

Theme is Tag me - Make or add a tag

Sponsors are

Bugaboo who are offering 7 images of the winners choice from their store

Floppy Latte who are offering  a $6 Gift Certificate for their store .

A $10 gift certificate to be spent on images from Beary Dust, Alipeeps art and stitchy at Stitchy Bear Store

Here is my DT card:

I was lucky enough to work with this adorable image Dede Christmas Tree from Bugaboo Stamps.  I colored her with my promarkers.  The papers are from my stash.  I added some pearls that I also colored with promarkers to match the card.  Such a great way to save a bit of money.  Just buy white and color yourself.  I used some red glitter embossing powder on the bows for her dress and hair.   I used my first ever handmade bow on this card.  I think it looks pretty decent! I recently got a set of cute tag dies with matching sentiments from My Creative Time. I love these dies! Can't wait to use them again.  I followed the sketch at Sketch N stash for the card layout.  

I had lots of fun making another Christmas card to mail out this year! If you would like some more tag inspiration head on over to the challenge blog to see what my team mates have created.  Hope to see you there.
