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!

Wrap it up

Hi again! Here is my second project for the Catch the Bug Holiday chaos event. The theme today is wrap it up.  I got my Grandma these cute kitchen utensils as part of a stocking stuffer.  I saw this adorable Gingerbread girl image and thought it would be perfect to use for a tag for this gift.

Closer view.......
I colored this image with my promarkers.  I used a gel pen around the hat to give it some sparkle.  I used the Sizzix tag die and mounted paper from my stash.  Green gemstones were added in the corners.  I fussy cut the image and mouted her with foam dots.  The label is from a clear stamp set from Oriental Trading.

I have been busy crafting away trying to do each project for all the challenges. I hope you enjoy them!
