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 blog hop



It's Clear it out's 3rd blog anniversary and it's time to celebrate! Theme is birthday. Stash is bling!  We have 2 great sponsors for this challenge and if you comment on this post, you can win a special prize pack I have put together for you.  Some clear stamps, goggle eye pack, bling, flowers and a deco runner. Winners will be announced on my blog next Tuesday. Be sure to make time for our blog hop and comment on each blog.  Many of the DT are offering prizes of their own as well as the two winners from our sponsors.

My prize pack for one lucky commenter:


Scribbles Designs -winner gets 3 images





Second sponsor is MelJen's
Winner gets 4 non coloured images
Meljen's Designs
Winner gets 3 images

I have made a card with an image from each sponsor!
First up is my card featuring an image from Scribbles Designs.  Look at that smile! All the paper is from my stash.  I added frosted pearls and a cupcake brad for bling. Card layout inspired by the sketch at House that Stamps built.

Next up is my card featuring the Meljens image.  How adorable is this little guy? I colored him with promarkers.  Add the papers are from my stash.  I added some new glitter ribbon that I got for an after Christmas clearance sale.  Love sales! Some frosted pearls and gems were added.  The sentiment is a matching die and stamp set from My Creative Time.  The hearts on ribbon are a die set from Memory Box. Card layout inspired by the sketch at Christmas Challenges with Sketches.



Here is the blog hop order. Your next stop is Laura W.  I hope you are enjoying our hop!
