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!

Pip the fairy @ Hobby Cutz

A new challenge is starting at Hobby Cutz Challenge blog today! Come play with us! Our theme this week is use a  Fairy.   Our sponsor is the generous A & T Digital Designs

My DT card:

I used this awesome image fromA & T Digital Designs.  Colored with my promarkers. I followed a tutorial by Kimberly Brown. I am trying to learn how to blend my colors better. She has some great tutorials for people who use promarkers.  All the papers and gems are from my stash. A glitter gel pen added some sparkle to her wings.  I used some spray ink on the border from Hobby Cutz.  The sentiment is from Stamping up as well as the punches. Card layout inspired by the sketch at Digi Sketch challenge.

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