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!

CFTH - Second Challenge

Hello, hello!  I have two creations to share today.  We have a new challenge at Crafting From the Heart.  I would like to thank everyone that joined us for first challenge last week! I am so pleased with the participation and I hope you all continue to join us.  As usual the Theme is ANYTHING GOES.  It's so simple!! Sponsors this week are:

 Delicious Doodles 4 images winners prize

Dilly Beans 3 images winners prize

Here is my first DT card:

This card features this lovely Emo image from Delicious Doodles.  I saw this image and had to create a card for a friend in my life that I knew would love her! I colored her with promarkers.  She was fussy cut and attached to cardstock. I added liquid applique to her hat and dress.  I can't believe it's almost gone already! I used papers from my stash.  The sentiments was stamped from a clear stamp set from Oriental Trading.  I used my irock tool to help heat/glue the gems to make the star.  Boy was that a trick to do! I think it turned out pretty nice! The flowers are from WOC.  I am attempting to learn how to make lovely floral arrangements on my cards.  I love the flowers from WOC.

I hope you have enjoyed this card.  I will be making a second post for my second DT card to follow challenge rules.  We would love for you to join us in our current challenge.  To link up and see more inspiration from my teamies click here. Hope to see you there.
