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!

Stella Says Sketch 205

Hey everyone.  A new stella says sketch challenge is starting today at Catch The Bug Challenge Blog .Don't you love sketch challenges? I know I do. 

The Sketch:

My GDT project:

This card features mini set - birthday girl, from Bugaboo stamps. I colored her with my promarkers.  All the papers are from my stash. I added glossy accents to the balloon, a handmade bow and some gemstones.  The sentiment is from Sentiments 4 you punched with stampin up oval and scalloped oval punches.  I used my sizzix oval dies to cut and mat the image.

Head on over to check out the other DT creations to inspire you this week. We would love to have you play along with us.
