About Me

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!

Crafting from the Heart First DT

It's here! Time to launch a brand new challenge blog!! I am so excited to be posting my first DT for Crafting From The Heart challenge blog!  Thank you so much to Erin and Fiona for allowing me to be a part of the team! We have a lovely group of ladies working on providing some inspiration for you for each challenge.  Our theme this week is Anything Goes.  How simple is that? We would love to have you check out our blog and play along with us.  Our sponsors for this challenge are

 Stamping Boutique 3 images of winners choice

Here is my DT card:

I was lucky to get to work with this adorable snowman image from The Stamping Boutique. I just love snowmen! I used papers form my stash.  The image was colored with my promarkers and a few spectrum noir. I used my snow writer on the snow ans snowflakes.  A die cut snowflake was added in the corner. Blue pearls were added along  the bottom. I used my gel glitter pen on on the snowmen hats.  I glued a red pom pom onto one of the hats.  I think it looks adorable.  Although I remember hating the pom poms on the hats as a child!  The sentiment is using my stampin up scalloped oval and oval punches.
