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!

Altered Project


Hi all! It's time for the FINAL project for the 13 days of Halloween over at Simply Betty Stamps! The challenge today is BIG BAD HALLOWEEN BLOW OUT!  Altered project anything but a journal or a card. Must be an actual altered item. 

The image is Mrs Witchy Boo! Colored with copics!  This frame started out as an ugly blue color. I painted it black and glues on all those buttons! This is my first real altered project! I had so much fun making it! 

I am sad that this is the last post for the SBS Halloween contest! I had so much fun playing this year and hope to join in next year as well!


Hugs,

Erin
