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!

SSD Sponsoring Left of Center Challenge Blog

Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring the challenge at Left of Center Challenge Blog this week.  The theme is Christmas.  I have made a little card to share with you all for some challenge inspiration. I know many of us are still scrambling to get our Christmas cards and shopping done! I hate the last minute shopping and prepping I always end up doing.  I need to be more on task!

Here is my GDT creation:

I used this spicy Reindeer Pin Up image for this card.  I colored her with my promarkers.  I used papers from my stash.  Some green gemstones were glued along the bottom.  I added a ribbon charm in the corner.  A red pom pom was used for her tail.  A friend send me some cute sparkly white fluff that I used on her dress and boots.  The sentiment is a matching die and stamp set from My Creative Time.  It's a new to me set.  I am in LOVE.  It comes with these little dies that cut images to fit in the circle for all the holidays of the year.  Such a great buy! Card layout inspired by the sketch at Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.
