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!

Snowman Photo Inspiration - Savvyhandmade cards

 Hi my crafty friends! It's time for a new challenge at Savvy Handmade cards.  I am sure we are all churning out the Christmas cards this month.  Our challenge this week is a photo inspiration.  We would love for you to play with us.

Here is my DT card:

How adorable is this image? I have been seeing others using the image and always forgot to look at where it came from.  One of my dear friends mentioned that I should check out the Tiddly Inks images and there it was! I just had to have it! I colored her with my promarkers. The papers are from my stash from Oriental Trading.  I added gemstones in the corners.  I tried out some liquid applique for the first time ever and LOVE it.  I used it on her hat and skirt.  I added some 3d candy stickers for some extra bling and sparkle.  I can't remember where the sentiment came from now.  I have been better at saving the names with the images now that I realize I can't remember anything these days!
 Card layout inspired by The sweetest thing sketch.

We would love to have you join us in our challenge this week.  Head over to link up and see more inspiration.
