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!

Completely Christmas Challenge 1

Hey everyone! Guess what? Today is the start of challenges at a new blog that I design for called Completely Christmas! It's all Christmas all the time.  I am so excited.  Hopefully this will help me stay on top of my Christmas projects this year.  It will be anything goes Christmas related except for once a month we will have a sketch challenge. Weekly challenges with awesome prizes.  We would love to see you play along with us.  This week our sponsor is Lacy Sunshine.


My DT card:

I got to work with this adorable image from lacy Sunshine.  Colored with promarkers.  All the papers are from my stash of Oriental Trading brand paper.  I added lots of bling with gems and pearls.  I used a 3d snowflake sticker in the upper left corner. How cute are the blue snowflakes I added around the image? The sentiment and the inked snowflakes around the image are from a clear stamp set called Tags and Trimmings from 3 Twenty Crafts.  Have you heard of them?  If not go check them out! The quality of the stamps is great.  I can't wait to use the other stamps on my projects! They have just released some new ones as well! Card layout inspired by the sketch at Sketch N Stash. I have to say I am really pleased at how this card turned out.  I think it is my best one yet!

I am also a Guest Designer at Jo's Scrap Shack.  This card will be featured there today as well!  Pop over to see my post and check out all the other fabulous DT creations. Did you know they do challenges there as well? If you are like me, you just love entering all the challenges you can, right?


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



Hugs,

Erin
