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!

Dark Abby

Hey all! Awhile back I won a challenge that allowed me to participate in a contest over at Scrapping4funchallenges The challenge is this sketch.



My project

I am not a person who does scrapbooks so I made a card following the layout as closely as possible. I think it turned out quite nice. This image, Dark Abby,  is from Simply Betty Stamps. Colored with copics. All the papers are from my stash and have been distressed.  I added four cute spider buttons. The sentiment is a 3D sticker.

Head on over to the blog and vote on your favorite project to win the grand prize!

SBS Solos

Hi all! I have some new Tuesday Solos from Simply Betty Stamps that I have colored up for you to see! I just love all the images from Betty! She is so talented. I am very happy to have the colorist spot for a few more months! 



This card features bad hair day! Look at all those ringlets! This was my first attempt at coloring hair like this! Hopefully I have done the image justice! Colored with copics. I just love using pink and green together. All the papers are from my stash. I added some enamel dots and a chipboard heart.




This card features the selfie image! Colored with copics. All the papers are new to my stash. I thought they were perfect for this cell phone image. I added a chipboard banner and present.



I hope you have enjoyed my Tuesday Solos! Looking forward to working with more of them soon!

Good morning everyone! I have some exciting news to share with you today! Awhile back I applied to the Stamping Chef DT call and guess what? They have room for me on the team now! How awesome is that? I just love all their images if you didn't know that already! So much fun to work with! Today I am sharing my first DT project with you. And remember the challenge is always ATG. Check out all the smexy images in the store!



 This card features this lovely knowledge image! She was so much fun to color with my copics. All the papers are from my stash. I used my new Little Darlings die cut in the background! It was really hard to get out of the die! I am sure I am doing something wrong but I just love this die so I will keep practicing. I used my new flowers and leaves from Prima. I made some enamel dots this weekend with some friends and added those as well! Card layout inspired by the sketch at Friday sketch challenge
