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!

Birthday Photo Challenge

Time for a new challenge at Savvy Handmade Cards.  Our challenge is  photo inspiration.

My DT card:

I used this adorable image from Simply Betty Stamps.  Colored with promarkers. All the papers are from my stash.  I added some glossy accents, flowers, and gems. The sentiment and punches are from Stampin Up. Card layout inspired by the sketch at sketch saturday
