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!

Catch The Bug - Holiday Chaos

Hello my crafty friends.  Catch the Bug Challenge Blog is having a week long event called Holiday Chaos Celebration.  There is a new challenge everyday for the next week or so.  I am hoping to complete a project for each of them.  They are offering some awesome prizes as well as GDT spots.  As you all know, I love the Bugaboo images and would love a spot on the team. Even if only temporary.  So time for me to head to my little crafty space in the basement and get to work.  Before I leave, I want to share the card I made for their sketch challenge! 

I used this AVG Santa with presents image that can be found here. I colored him with my promarkers.  I used a white ball pen to make the beard and hat parts stand out! I used papers from my stash.  Rhinestones and tassel ribbon were all added from my stash.  I added a cute little chipboard envelope die cut that I had leftover from another project.  The sentiment was cut from card stock.  I tried to cut out my own banner.  I totally need to find a good die to use for that next time!  I hope you have enjoyed my first creation for the Chaos.  Hopefully posting again tomorrow.
