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!

CFTH - Valentina

Hi! Another challenge is starting at Crafting From the Heart. We are changing things up a bit and doing some themes. This week is pearls/buttons. The sponsors are :
A day for daisies
A Day For Daisies
$12 voucher to spend in the shop
Lacy Sunshine
Lacy Sunshine
3 digis of the winners choice
Angies Digi Stamps
Angie's Digi Stamps
3 digis of the winners choice




My DT card:


I worked with this adorable Valentina image from Lacy Sunshine.  I colored her with promarkers.  All the papers are from a new paper pack that I got for Christmas.  My boyfriend filled my stocking with stickles this year so I used some cotton candy stickles on the heart in her hand.  I used my sizzix oval die to cut and mat the image.  I distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz distressing tool.  The bow is handmade.  I added buttons and pearls from my stash.  The sentiment is punched with my stampin up oval and scalloped oval punches.
