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 - Men/boys

A new challenge is starting at Paper Crafting Journey today! Come play with us! Our theme this week is men/boys.  Our sponsor is the generous Kenny K.

My DT card:

I used this awesome colored image from Kenny K. I colored him with promarkers.  All the papers, mesh ribbon and 3d candy stickers are from my stash. The heart doily is new.  I used stickles on the hat for some sparkle.  The sentiment is from a clear set I got from Your Next Stamp.  I think this works pretty well for a boy card! Card layout inspired by the sketch at Fussy and Fancy.

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