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!

All Tied up - Hobbycutz DT

Hi all!!! It's time for a new challenge at Hobby Cutz Challenges! Who's excited? The theme this week is All Tied Up. So let's see the ribbon, bows or twine on your projects! Our sponsor this week is Kenny K.

My DT card:

I love this Mrs Claus image. She was so much fun to color with my promarkers. I added some red liquid pearls around the image.  Liquid applique was used on her boots and dress.  The sentiment was stamped form a clear stamp set from Oriental trading.  I added some homemade bows to the 3d gift stickers.  I think they look so cute! All the papers and mesh ribbon are from my stash.   Card layout inspired by the sketch at I heart sketches.

We would love to have you participate in our challenge today! To link up and see more DT inspiration head here.
