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!

Savvy Thanks DT

Happy Friday everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Savvy Handmade Cards.  Our theme this week is Give Thanks.  Our sponsor is the always generous Bugaboo Stamps. Who doesn't love their images?

I chose this cute pilgrim girl to make a Thanksgiving card with.  How adorable is she? I colored her with my promarkers.  I used papers from my stash.  I die cut a lacy border and added some coffee colored pearls.  I am using my new My Creative Time matching tag die and stamp set for the sentiment.  I just love them so much.  I have a hard time not using them on every card now! I added a sparkly bow to the upper corner and a pumpkin die cut was added to the lower corner. I used the sketch at for the card layout.

We would love to have you join us so head over to the challenge and link up your projects.
