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!

Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Romance

A new challenge is starting at Fan-Tastic Tuesday today! Come play with us! Our theme this week is Romance.  Our sponsor is the generous Bugaboo Stamps.

My DT card:

I used this awesome image from Bugaboo.  I colored her with promarkers. Shabby pink frantage was used around the image. Tiny red gemstones were used as ear rings and bigger gems were used above the image.   All the papers are from my stash. I used pieces from my scrap bin.  The leftovers are a bit out of hand! I need to start using some up instead of adding to the pile. I added some heart shaped buttons. I didn't add a sentiment since I think the ribbon does it enough.  Card layout inspired by the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

We would love to have you link up  your projects today!



Entering in the following challenges:

  1. Cute card, Erin! I like how you used the Frantage - I just ordered some of this - have never used it before but I love the look! And I know what you mean about the scraps - mine are way out of hand too. I must find a way to use them! Have a great day!

  2. A wonderful card using the bugaboo image. Thanks for sharing at Crafting for All seasons and good luck.
