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!

C4E - Oak Pond Creations Sponsor

Another Anything Goes challenge starts today at Challenges 4 Everybody. Our sponsor this week is Oak Pond Creations.

My DT card:

I got to work with this cute Otis owl! I just love owls and was so thrilled to work with him.  I colored him with promarkers.  I love the color blue I made him.  He is just so darn cute! Ble is my favorite color.  It's so hard to make a card without some blue in it!  I used papers form my stash.  Blue pearls along the edge.  I colored the hat with a glitter gel pen. Another favorite thing of mine! It's my fave way to add glitter to my projects!  Lots of snowflakes on this one! Card layout inspired by the sketch at Sketch N Stash. The sentiment used my oval and scalloped oval punches from Stampin Up.
