About Me

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!

SSD - Sparkle and Shine

I have another card for you as I continue my December GDT at Sassy Studio Designs.  I have really been enjoying myself.  I love their images.  There is a new challenge this week.  The theme is Sparkle and Shine. 

I am using one of the new Christmas images.  How cute is she? I colored her with my promarkers. The papers are form my stash.  I used a chipboard sentiment.  Gemstones and a sparkly present were added for sparkly embellishments.  A handmade bow was used.  Stickles were added to each star on her pjs. Glossy accents were used to make the milk in the glass look more real! Card layout inspired by the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I hope you enjoy my card and link up with the new challenge!
