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 Traditional Christmas Colors

Time for a new challenge at Glitter n Sparkle. This week our theme is Traditional Christmas colors.

Sponsors are :

Bugaboo who are offering 7 images from their store

Floppy Latte who are offering a $6 gift certificate for the winner

Stitchy bear stamps who are offering a $10 gift cert for their store for images from stitchy, delicious Doodles and BB Kakes

My DT card:

I got to work with this cute image from Delicious Doodles. I colored her with my promarkers.  I used papers from my stash.  I used stickles on her hat and dress.  I love the glitter.  I added some frosted green pearls.  They are my fave embellishment.  I need to find more in other colors.  I added a flower die cut sticker.  The sentiment was stamped from a clear stamp set from Oriental Trading. Card layout was inspired by the sketch at Sketch N Stash.
