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!

GnS - Stitching

New challenge at Glitter n Sparkle!  Our theme this week is stitching ( real or faux).  Our sponsors this week are:

Sassy Studios 4 images

Scribbles Designs 3 images

Fitztown 3 images

Eureka 5 images

My DT card:

I got to work with this image from Sassy Studio Designs this week.  I colored her with promarkers. I used papers from my stash.  Some twine and frosted pearls were added.  I used a handmade bow as well.  Glossy accents were used on her eyes and the badge on her hat. Some glitter was added to the hat band with a gel pen. I doodled the stitching around the image.  I would love to get a stamp that does it for me so they can all be even.  I used my stampin up oval and scalloped oval punched for the sentiment.   Card layout inspired by the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

We would love to have you join us this week.  Head here to link up your projects and see more DT inspiration.
