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!

GnS DT - Glitter and Sparkle theme

It's time for a new challenge at Glitter n Sparkle.  This week our theme is Glitter and Sparkle! Don't we all love to add that to our cards anyway? Yes, no? I know that I do.  It just doesn't seem right to not have something sparkly to distract me.

This weeks sponsors are

Fresh Brewed Designs who are offering 3 images from their store

Guylous who are offering a $10 gift cert for their store

QKR who are offering 5 images from their store

Lacy Sunshine who are offering 3 images from their store

Di's Digi Downloads who are offering a $12 gift Cert for their store

Here is my DT card:

This week I got to work with this adorable monster image from Lacy Sunshine. I colored her with my promarkers.  I used paper from my stash.  The sentiment was stamped from a clear Studio G stamp set.  I added a handmade bow that a good friend made for me.  A die cut snowflake was added to the top as well as some blue pearls. I put some glossy accents on the monster teeth and nails but I don't think it showed up very well in this picture.  Maybe too small of a space? I have never used glossy accents before.  I added some googly eyes to the cute monster hat.  Card layout inspired by the sketch at Sketch n Stash.

We would love for you to link up your creations with us this week.  Head here to add your projects and to see more inspiration from my DT teamies.
