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!

Scribble and Scrap GDT

Hey everyone.  I am so pleased to share with you a card I made for a GDT spot at Scribble and Scrap.  I was so excited to see that I had gotten this weeks spot. Their images and DT creations are always so lovely.  I worked really hard on this card trying to make it as special as I could.

I colored this adorable puglie image with my promarkers.  All the papers are from my vintage Christmas stack.  I used loose glitter to make the snow sparkly.  The flowers are from Kays. I can't wait to try some of her butterflies although I seem to have misplaced some I bought! I used a die to make the leafy branches. I used gesso for the first time on the floral arrangement.  Can you see the little pinecones peeking out? Those are real! A friend picked them up on her daily walk.  I couldn't find any small ones in the stores around here.  I think it looks awesome.  I used a fabric sticker as a sentiment.

I hope you have enjoyed my GDT card for Scribble and Scrap and you head over to play today.  Thank you for having me team!
