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!

First Easel Card.

A new challenge is starting at Paper Crafting Journey today! Come play with us! Our theme this week is make an easel card.  Our sponsor is the generous Rick St Dennis.

My DT card:

I used this awesome image from Rick StDennis. Colored with promarkers. All the papers are form my stash.  I added some flowers and ribbon. I used a sizzix die for the sentiment. The sentiment is from Stampin Up. This is my first easel card.  I think it came out quite nice.  I can't wait to make more of them

  2. Very cute and love the flowers! Your first easel card is fabulous! I remember my first one - it wasn't very long ago! I was intimidated to try it, but then I realized it wasn't difficult at all. I'm trying to be more adventurous in my card making, but it takes me a while to try something new LOL.
