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!

Sassy Studios First GDT

OMG. I am beyond happy right now. I tried out for a GDT at Sassy Studio Designs and got it!!! I love their images.  To have any spot on their team makes my day! Here is my first post as a GDT for them.  The Theme this week is It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas.

I got to work with this super cute Candy Cane image.  How adorable is she? I colored her with my promarkers.  I used papers from my stash.  I added some green mesh ribbon and some  Poinsetta 3D stickers.  I used my snowriter to make it look like she is surrounded by snowflakes.  I found this cute jingle bell sentiment that went perfectly with her.  Card layout inspired by the sketch at Addicted to Stamps

  10. Hi, Erin, just popping in to answer your question about my charms. I usually affix them with either pop dots or my Ultimate Glue. I've tried tying them on but I don't like it as much. HTH! It's all white here today and still snowing - looks so pretty but it's too messy to go anywhere - my BF and I were supposed to go shopping as he's off today. Maybe tomorrow. Wishing you a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend!
