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 - Make it masculine

A new challenge is starting at Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge Blog today! Come play with us! Our theme this week is make is masculine. Our sponsor is the generous Sparkle and Sprinkle

My DT project:

I used this awesome image from Sparkle and Sprinkle.  Colored with promarkers. Edges were inked with distress ink.  I added some paper that I found in my stash that I thought went great with this image.  It looks like a compass to me.  I added some ribbon.  Not entirely sure what type this is as it was a scrap in my stash.  I used the tag dies from My Creative time to make the little brown tags peeking out from behind the image.  A starfish brad and brown pearls were added from my stash. Masculine cards are not something I am very comfortable with but I love how this turned out.  Card layout inspired by the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

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