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!

Give Thanks - Savvy Handmade Cards DT

It's time for a new challenge at Savvy HandMade Cards.  This week the theme is a photo inspiration.  We would love to see your take on this photo so link up your creations.  Here is my take for a little extra inspiration for you!

I have used an image from Bugaboo Stamps. I just love their images and every Friday they have a new freebie so check them out! They are so easy to work with.  I colored this cute scarecrow with my promarkers.  I used paper from my stash.  Some pumpkin ribbon trim was glued along the bottom.  I love that trim. It's so cute.  I am almost out of it already! The sentiment was cut from cardstock.  A pumpkin foam sticker was added for some extra bling in the corner.  I did some faux stitching on the image.

I hope you like my card and decide to come play with us!
