About Me

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!

CIO - Copycat

New challenge time at Clear It Out Challenge Blog.

Sponsor: StitchyBear Outlet

Stash: Anything goes

Theme:  Copy cat- a past DT card or one from this challenge.  Pick any DT card made and copy it!

 My DT card:

I used one part of the Lil Cowgirl and Cowboy set by Lil Diva Stamps that can be found here. My grandfather's birthday is coming up.  This will be a perfect card for him.  He loves cowboys and westerns. I colored him with my promarkers. The sentiment was stamped from a clear stamp set from fiskars.  The embellishments are all 3D stickers that are decoupaged. I love 3D stickers.  All the papers are from my stash.  I used circle and scalloped circle dies on the image. Card layout was inspired by the sketch at Creative Card Crew and Seems a little sketchy.   I will  have to get a box to mail out this card.  All the extra bling makes it hard to fit in an envelope safely.

For more inspirations and to link up your projects head here.  We would love to have you join us!
