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!

Catch the bug - color inspiration

Hey all. Did you know that Catch the Bug is having a week long Birthday bash? I am totally in for getting all the projects done.  They are offering some awesome prizes.  Todays card is with the color challenge.

Did you also know that Monday was national penguin day? At least. I'm pretty sure I read that somewhere.  This is another adorable Bugaboo image.  I colored him with my promarkers.  All the papers are from a new stack that I just got.  Glossy accents were used on the balloon and stickles on the bow.  I added some gems.  A strip of ribbon that I won in a blog hop from Some Odd Girl was used.  The sentiment is from TLC. I used circle die cuts for the image and mat.  Card layout was inspired by the sketch at Mojo Monday.
