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.

Hang in There!

Quick post this morning since we are finally getting out of the house today. We haven't been out and about since Monday. I am in desperate need of a grocery store. I made this card for an old high school friend's son. He just got out of surgery and I thought he could use a pick-me-up. Tracy Gentry showed this technique on her blog about a year ago and I finally got around to trying it. I CASED this card from her. I stamped the monkey and the branch first and then I cut out a large circle and used the negative piece. I placed masks on both the monkey and branch and then placed the open circle on top. I sponged inside the circle with Bashful Blue ink. I know clear as mud. Any questions I can walk you through it. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
