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.

Every Day is a Gift

Happy Wednesday! I made this card using the sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You. You can check out the sketch here. I practiced a bit with my Copic markers. I am kinda getting the hang of it. I am actually going to a class on Sunday to learn a bit more. So, here's the thing I don't know how to use a sewing machine. I did get one for my birthday. My MIL is going to have to teach me how to use it. For this card I hand stitched the border. Don't look too closely. :) All supplies are SU except the sentiment which is PTI. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
