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!

Download Diva - Papercrafting journey

A new challenge is starting at Paper Crafting Journey today! Come play with us! Our theme this week is stripes/spots.  Our sponsor is the generous Kenny K.

My DT card:

I used this awesome image from Kenny K. Colored with promarkers. All the papers are from my stash.  I added some buttons, mesh ribbon and musical note stickers.  The sentiment is from Tiddly ink.  Card layout inspired by a sketch from Paper take weekly.  I am taking some coloring classes at Kit and Clowder and from Simply Betty.  I can't wait to get more experience with my coloring!

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

  1. Love the bright colours! The glittery musical notes are fabulous!

    I made one of your little bird's nests from your tutorial yesterday - I had glue all over my fingers but it turned out pretty cute! I don't think my beads are the right kind but that's okay. Now I have to make the perfect card to use it. I plan to make some more of these birds' nests - when I find better beads - hopefully in my stash somewhere LOL. I think the nests are adorable - thanks again for your tut!

  2. Thank you for the kind comment. I can't wait to see your nest!

  3. Such a wonderful creation with great attention to detail. Love the colours and embellishments. All the elements work so well together. It is perfect for our fourth ‘ANYTHING GOES’ challenge. Thanks for sharing your talent with us. Good luck.
