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!

Santa spreading joy

Hi everyone! I am here to share my creative inspiration with you today featuring Santa Spreading Joy.  I made a gift card holder this time around.  So simple to make with this die I got from My Creative Time
My printer is out of ink all of a sudden so I am unable to share my recipe card this time.   Here are the colors I used though:

copics for the skin e11, e00, e21
promarkers crimson, lipstick red, burgundy, bright green, black, cocoa and gold


I hope you like this gift card!

Tinsels Tangles

Hi all! I am here to share some creative inspiration with you today! I have a bunch of Christmas cards to send overseas so I can't really bling them all up.  I find they get ruined on the way there or cost an arm and a leg to send.  So I decided what better images to focus on than Lacy Sunshine ones! Tinsels Tangles in so cute! I loved worked with her.  I used a bunch of stickles for sparkle.  I hope you like her too!





Don't forget to enter our ATG challenge!

Autumn Enchantress

Hey all ! I am so excited to share this project with you. A friend came to stay with me and we decided to have a little crafting time.  We made altered pringles cans.  Boy do they take a long time to make but so worth it.  I used this gorgeous lacy sunshine image to create this project. I added some ribbon, flowers and pumpkins.  I really hope you like it! I added flowers from WOC and I am roses, paper straws, and some ribbon! I cut up some fall foilage to use as well.

Next we have The Goblyn Workshop. This is also an Etsy store!
  The theme is 'Inspired by a Movie' or, as always, you can go LOC!


My project:

I am loving working in my journal. This image is from The Art of Ron R Barton. Colored with copics. I started this page while I was camping with my good friend, Vicky! She had a gelli plate that I got to play with to make part of this background. I must get one of my own. I used oil pastels as well for the background and inked around the edges with distress ink! The sentiment was hand stamped! My movie inspiration is a tv show called The Dominion! Love vampires!



Hope you have enjoyed my creation!
