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!

Clear it Out First DT

Hello all! I am excited to announce that I have been asked to join the talented team at Clear it Out Challenge Blog. I am so happy to be a part of this team providing inspirations and new challenges for you every week.  All you need to do is follow our theme and stash items each week to play along.

Sponsor: Bugaboo
Stash: use buttons
Theme: thank you

I got to work with this image from Bugaboo. I love their digis. I colored it with promarkers.  I added glossy accents to the ballons.  A glitter gel pen added some glitter to the presents and party hats.  The sentiment was computer generated.  I used paper, ribbon and buttons from my stash.  Card layout inspired by the sketch at Sketch n Stash.

We would love to have you link up today.  For more DT inspiration click here.
