And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Winter's On the Way!

Happy Saturday to you, my friends!  Have you noticed that little nip in the air?  I do believe winter is on the way!  Thoughts of snow and snowmen are on my mind, and so I reached for this cute little SNSS set called "Welcome Jesus" for my Sweet Stop sample for this week.  The main image in the set is this adorable joyful snowman!

Creative Nugget:  I began by stamping and coloring the snowman on a rectangle nestie with my trusty copics.  The sparkly starburst shapes and snowdrifts were added.  A second snowman was stamped on a scrap piece of paper, cut out, and popped up on top of the the first one.  Eskimo Kisses DP was used for the background panels.  I actually got my Sew Mini out for some real zig-zag stitching around the edges of each panel.  A Martha Stewart snowflake border in Cherry Cobbler was added to the turquoise layer which was given some texture with the canvas impression plate. This was all added to a Cherry Cobbler layer and then to a Select White card base.  A build-a-flake die, Maraschino Baker's Twine, and Star Dust Stickles were added to complete the card.  Now...doesn't this card just make you think of winter?  

This was such a fun and easy sketch to use...I know I will be using it again!  Check the other marvelous creations by the Sugar Babies and give this one a try.  Upload your creation using the keyword SSS135 over at The Sweet Stop.  There's one more week left in November's SWEET CELEBRATION which means you can be randomly selected to win a $10 prize for SNSS!  We love to see your talent displayed each week!
