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!

Savvy Handmade Cards - Love

Time for a new challenge at Savvy Handmade Cards.  This weeks challenge is Love! What a perfect challenge for today.

My DT card:

I used this adorable image from Tiddly Inks. I recently found these images on a friends recommendation and I am in LOVE.   I colored her with my promarkers.  Chocolate and pink are two of my favorite colors together. Ribbon, heart button and a handmade bow were added. I used paper from my new Love Letter stack. The sentiment is from Sentiments for you punched with oval and scalloped oval punches from stampin up.  Card layout inspired by the sketch at From the heart stamps.

We would love to have you link up your projects today. Happy Valentines Day everyone!
