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!

Paper Crafting Journey - Love

A new challenge is starting at Paper Crafting Journey 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 colored image from The Paper Shelter.  This is my first time using a colored image.  Great when you are short on time and it looks pretty good! I used my circle and scalloped circle dies to mat the image. The papers are from my new Love Letter stack.  I added some heart ribbon and 3d stickers.   Card layout inspired by the sketch at Sketch N stash. .

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

  1. What a fun image! Cute card, Erin! I like to use precoloured images too at times and they're a great time saver.

  2. Erin, this is a fabulous card. I love the papers, ribbon and embellishments you used to accent this pre-colored image. Living in the desert of Phoenix, AZ made me look twice at your card and smile...it's an awesome image. :) My daughter is 29 and a vet tech out here in Phoenix and loves her profession. She's too busy to craft, though, with working and taking care of her own menagerie at home..which makes me wonder how many pets do you have? It's one of the work hazards, right? Take care, thanks for entering the challenge at The Paper Shelter and for using one of the company's images. It's awesome when we see our own images used. Hugs, Gail
