About Me

Sarahfleming1 Hello! My name is Sarah Fleming, and I'm a paper addict living in central Texas. I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit. If you're in the USA, I'd love to be your demonstrator!

Baby Elephant Thanks You – FMS200


Good morning afternoon! I have a quick post today because I want to get this in before the deadline. Freshly Made Sketches has their 200th sketch challenge! This is one of my favorite challenges even though I haven’t played very often. I love looking at the design team’s cards! And they have some beauties this week.

Stampin' Up! baby thank you card for FMS200 - Zoo Babies and Endless Thanks - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye

Some dear friends surprised me with a virtual baby shower a couple weeks ago. I was shocked and overwhelmed at all the thoughtfulness (and the subterfuge that made it happen!). This is a thank you note for one of my friends, who is a grellow lover. I tried to keep it clean for the challenge, and I love how it turned out! I hope my friend loves it, too. I may make it in several different color schemes and with other stamps from the Zoo Babies set.

All of the products I used are available now in my Stampin’ Up! store, except for the Fine Tip Glue Pen, which I used to glue down the tiny bow to the elephant’s head. That will be available next Tuesday when the holiday catalog goes live.

Thanks, ladies! And congratulations on your 200th challenge! On TV, that’d be something like 10 seasons.
