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!

Bears

Hey everyone! I completely forgot to post the card I made for my mom for Mothers Day.  I colored this image from The Paper Shelter with my copics.  I added a bunch of flowers, pearl stem and die cuts. The shabby bark heart is from Live Love Crafts. I chalked around the image.  My mom loved this card.  She just adores bears!



Hugs,

Erin

Weight lifting - Alicia Bel

Good morning everyone! Time for a new challenge at Left of Center today! The theme is no square or rectangle projects or you can always go left of center.  The sponsor today is Alicia Bel
How adorable is this image? I just love how she is lifting weights.  I made the card base using some go kreate dies.  The image is colored with copics. I used some crystal effects on the weights to make them stand out.  I added some chipboard pieces by Tim Holtz for the quote.  The quote comes from my favorite workout of all time Chalean Extreme.  I added a chipboard gear that I covered with frantage. I love how it turned out. The picture just doesn't do it justice!


I hope you like her!




Hugs

Cheerful Hummingbird

Hey everyone! I would like to share this Mothers Day card I made with you.  I colored this adorable humming bird image that I bought at The Paper Shelter.  How cute is she? I chalked around the image.  I added some Prima flowers and applied some stickles for extra sparkle.  The sentiment is chipboard.  I added a chipboard hummingbird that I applied some frantage too.  I love how it turned out! Some pearls were applied in the corners.  All the paper is from my stash.



I hope you like my creation!


Hugs,


Erin

Spider webVeil

Hey everyone! A new challenge is starting at Left of Center today! The theme is spiders or you can always go left of center!  Our wonderful sponsor today is A Day for Daisies Sami Stamps
! I have made an index card to share with you! This is my first attempt at one.  It was so much fun.  I used chalks for the background and some stamps using distress ink.  I used metallic chalk around the image.  Boy, were my hands messy when I finished this project.  I really hope you like it!
