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!

My DT card:

I used this adorable image from Art by Miran. This image just reminds me of a summer dayon vacation dressed for some shopping!  Colored with my new copics. I just love the pink copic range!  All the papers and buttons are from my stash.  I added a bunch of flowers. My first time trying to get fancy with an arrangement! Sentiment is from stampin up.  The card layout is inspired by the sketch at Tuesday morning sketch.
