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!

Hi all.    Open-Minded Crafting is having a new challenge starting today!  Our challenge this week is Wings.

My DT card:

I used this adorable image from Aurora Wings   Colored with my promarkers.  All the papers are new digital papers from Michele R Designs. They are just perfect for this image.  I love them!  I added some stickles and a WOC flower. Card layout inspired by the sketch at Digi Sketch challenge. I think this is one of my best projects.  I have been taking the skin and hair coloring class at Kit and Clowder.  I have only been doing a few of the skin class so far.  I can't wait to get more free time to work on them!

We would love to have you link up your creations with us this challenge.  Head on over to check out other amazing DT work!
