About Me

My photo
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.

A Little Birdie....

My mother-in-law lent me A Little Birdie Told Me stamp set. I thought it would be perfect for a card for my workshop this weekend. I saw a similar card on Angie Juda's blog and I changed it a bit to make it my own. :) I used Soft Suede for the card and layered it with Pink Flamingo designer paper. I stamped the two birds with basic black and used my crayons and aqua painter to color them. I have a bunch of clear buttons that I have never used (not really sure what to do with them) so I punched a 1 inch circle and used my white gel pen to decorate then attached it to the button (clear as mud?) Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
