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!

From the heart stamps February Progressive Challenge

Hi all! I would like to share with you the card I made for the February Progressive challenge at From the heart stamps.  I just love their images and am happy to play along.

Image is From the heart stamps. Colored with promarkers.  I added some glitter to the flame and glossy accents to the melted wax.  It looks perfect in person.  My grandma has a birthday coming up in a few weeks.  I'm sure she will get a kick out of this.  Card layout inspired by the sketch at Moving along with the times.
