I am Sarah, a stay at home mom of two wonderful, little boys. In my life before kids I was a fifth grade teacher. I now work with first year teachers, which I love. Creating is one of the ways I stay sane. I become very cranky if I have not stamped or scrapped in a while. Join me on this creative journey.

Kazan's Sketch 13



Happy Wednesday. I just ran a ton of errands and as a special treat I went to the book store to pick up the second book in the Twilight Series. I am so excited to sit down and read it. But first I have some work to do. I needed a Bar Mitzvah card for my cousin's son. For those of you who don't know a Bar Mitzvah is a Jewish celebration when a boy (in this case) turns 13. The Bar Mitzvah was in Florida so we didn't get to go, but I wanted to send this card with his gift. I started with a 5 1/2 card base of Whisper White, I layered it with Brushed Silver and Everyday Blessings from Papertrey Ink. I stamped one of the frames from Frames with a Flourish Night of Navy on the silver, I made a second frame by cutting two and adhering them together. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

Sarah this is gorgeous, simple yet elegant and perfect for a handsome young man ready to celebrate his
Bar Mitzvah - I am sure he will appreciate the gift and thoughtful card even though you could not attend.
