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 - tic tac toe

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.  One of them being another guest designer spot.  I won one last time and would to extend my DT time with bugaboo.  I love their images. Don't you?  This card is for the tic tac toe challenge.

I did the free, bugaboo image, and ribbon.  I used this adorable image from Bugaboo. I colored him with my promarkers.  All the papers are from a new stack that I just got.  Distress stickles were added to the cupcake for frosting.  I added a handmade bow and some clear pearls.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC.   I think I will add this card to the donation basket I am making for the little child who needs a transplant. Such a good cause.  I hope you liked my birthday card! See you later with more birthday posts!

  2. Erin, Not sure my last comment was published so here goes again. This is a delightful Bugaboo image and love how you've colored Mr. Cupcake Bear. You've got that diagonal tic tac nailed with your choice of pretty elements, and it's always such fun when I surf to a new blog and see your picture there as DT or GDT. You are keeping so busy...Hope you are cozy & warm if you're in the path of this storm that we're seeing on the news. TFS & Hugs
