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!

Just For Fun GDT

A new challenge is starting at Just for Fun  The theme is Love but not limited to Valentines Day. I am excited to share my guest designer inspiration with you.  I was pleased to have been picked as their February GDT!

My GDT card:

I used this awesome image from From the heart stamps.  I colored her with promarkers.  All the papers are from digital kits at Scrappiness Designs.  Aren't they adorable? I added a cupcake brad that I recently bought. The sentiment is a matching stamp and die set from My Creative Time. Perfect for the love challenge this month.
