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!

Hobby Cutz - Love Challenge

A new challenge is starting at Hobby Cutz Challenge blog today! Come play with us! Our theme this week is love.  Our sponsor is the generous The Paper Shelter.

My DT card:

I used this awesome image from The Paper Shelter. The image is adhered to the amazing laser cut from Hobby Cutz. I left it as it came since I think it is beautiful the way it is.  I colored it with promarkers.  The papers, ribbon and flower are all from my stash.  The sentiment is from Sentiments for you and punched with my stampin up oval and scalloped oval punches.    Card layout inspired by the sketch at The Outlawz Sketch challenge.

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