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!

ATG Christmas Challenge

Anything Goes Christmas Challenge! This is my last creation for the Catch The Bug Challenge blog Holiday Chaos event.  I have enjoyed making these cards using the Bugaboo images.  Keep your fingers crossed for me that I win a GDT spot!!

I used this adorable Santa with a candycane image that can be found here.  I colored him with promarkers.  All the papers are from my stash.  I added some 3D stickers for embellishments.  I used some stickles on the hat! I love stickles!!! I added some cute red ribbon.  The sentiment and tag dies are a matching set from My Creative Time. Love them! Card layout was inspired by the sketch at Mojo Monday.
