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!

Suzy Bee's February Sketch

A new challenge is starting at Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge Blog today! Come play with us! Our theme this week is a sketch. I don't know about you, but I love using the sketches to create my cards.  Maybe it is my lack of imagination? Either way we would love to have you play with us this week.  Our sponsor is the generous Lacy Sunshine.

Here is the sketch:

My DT card:

I used this awesome image from Lacy Sunshine.  How adorable is she? Perfect for a Valentines card or any love project you want to make.  I tried really hard to blend the colors with this image.  I am quite pleased with how it turned out.  I still have a long way to go with developing my coloring skills though! I used paper and rhinestones from my stash.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC. I am thankful for their free daily sentiments.
