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!

Exciting news!!!!!!!

Hi everyone! I have some exciting news to share with you! I have been offered a 6 month GDT at Crafty Sentiments Designs! I am so stoked! I have been practicing on my coloring skills and thought why not give it a go! I was pleasantly surprised to get the email asking me if I wanted to be a GDT! Of course I said yes! So be expecting some biweekly inspiration from me!!

Theme this challenge is NO DESIGNER PAPER

My GDT project:

This project features Springtime Delight. How adorable is she? I chose to do a monochrome with blues to play in the challenge over at Digi Sketch challenge as well also using their sketch. I embossed the cardstock to create a bit of background and texture. I love how it turned out! What about? I added some flowers, a button , bow die cut, gems and an adorable butterfly from Kay's. The sentiment is from Create with TLC. Colored with promarkers.

We would love to have you enter our challenge today! Head on over to see more amazing inspiration from my team mates and to link up.
