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 Tuesdays ATG

A new challenge is starting at Fan-Tastic Tuesday today! Come play with us! Our theme this week is ATG.  Our sponsor is the generous Sparkle and Sprinkle.

My DT card:

I used this pansy ring image from Sparkle and Sprinkle.  Colored with promarkers.  I added some loose glitter to the ribbon on the image for some sparkle.  All the paper, gems and ribbon is from my stash.  I used my sizzix circle and scalloped circle dies.  The sentiment is from a clear set from Your Next Stamp.  Card layout inspired by the sketch at Sweet Sketch 2.

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



Entering in the following challenges:
crafty ribbon - atg
sparkle and sprinkle
eclectic ellapu - gems
a gem of a challenge - spots and stripes
pattie's creations - spots dots
