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!

Glitter n Sparkle Add Snow DT

Hello there!! It's time for another challenge at Glitter n Sparkle.  The challenge this week is Show Us Some Snow. How easy is that? Aren't we all working on our Christmas cards anyway? I know I am.  I should have started them at the beginning of the year to get them all made by now so it would be less stressful! Anyway, our sponsors for this challenge are

Inky Impressions who are offering a $10 gift certificate

Sassy Studios who are offering 4 images from their store

Crafty Sentiments who are offering 3 images from their store

Here is my DT card:

For this challenge I was lucky enough to work with Snowman Gift from Crafty Sentiments Design.  How adorable is this image? I colored him with my promarkers.  Papers, ribbon and gems were all used from my stash.  I used my gel glitter pen to make the snow on the bottom sparkle.  I used my snow writer on the snowballs to give them a bit more dimension.  The sentiment is a matching ticket set from My Creative Time. I love this set almost as much as my new tag set.  I know, I am obsessed with dies! I used the sketch at Seems a little Sketchy for the card layout. I really like how this card works out with the not so traditional colors.

We would love to have you enter our Snow challenge with us.  So head on over to the blog for more DT inspiration and to link up your own projects.  Hope to see you there.
