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!

Suzy Bee's Sketch challenge

Time for a new challenge at Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge.  This weeks challenge is a sketch.  I don't know about you but I love having sketches to follow to make a card.  Our sponsors this week are:

 And Digi Darla

 Here is the sketch to follow:       
My DT card:
I used this cute shopper image from Broken Box Stock. I colored her with promarkers.  All the papers are from my stash.  I added a handmade bow and some frosted blue pearls.  I used a new metal heart sentimental saying that is held in place with a red heart brad. I have never used brads before.  So much fun. I do love to shop so this is the perfect card for me.  I have been asked to donate a basket full of card for a benefit for a sweet child that needs a liver transplant.  I think this card would be cute to add in. What do you think?

We would love for you to come play with us. Click here for more inspiration and to link up.
