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!

Lucky Turtle

Hey everyone.  I am so excited to finally be able to write this post. As you know back in December I played along for the week long Christmas chaos event and won a 2 month GDT spot at Catch The Bug Challenge Blog.  March and April are my GDT months here.  I just love Bugaboo images. It has been my dream to work with this design team! I have been working on a bunch of projects for this DT this past week so get ready to see lots of work over the next couple of months assuming no disasters happen. Knocking on wood.

Anyway enough gushing and onto my oldie but a goodie project I made to share.  You know every Thursday the DT share projects featuring the older images, right? What a great way to bring back some of the older images I bought and haven't played with in awhile!

This card features turtles good luck. from bugaboo stamps. I colored him with my promarkers.  All the papers are from my stash.  I added some twine beneath the image. Popped the image up with some pop dots.  Some pearls and glitter shamrocks were also used.  The sentiment is stamped from a clear stamp set by Studio G. Card layout inspired by the sketch at Tuesday Morning sketches.

Head on over to check out the other DT creations to inspire you this week.
