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!

Zoo animals @ Savvy Hand made cards

Time for a new challenge at Savvy Handmade Cards.  Our challenge is use an animal that can be found in a zoo.

My DT card:

I used this adorable image from Meljens. I just love koalas. Perfect card for a special female in my life. My mother isn't part of my life but I have some mom figures who I like to show my appreciation for this time of year! Colored with promarkers. All the papers are from my stash.  I added some frosted pearls, stickles and a handmade bow. The sentiment and punches are from Stampin Up.

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