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)

I've Been Liebstered!

Hello everyone...happy Thursday to you!  It's to be a glorious day here today...very spring-like with the temperature getting close to 70!  I plan to get out and enjoy it, but first I have some wonderful news and a card to share with you.   I was so surprised to learn that I had been Liebstered by my very sweet Sugar Baby friend, Shannon!  I am sorry to say that I had no idea what that meant until I read her blog.  Now that I know what it means, I feel very honored...Thank you so much, Shannon, for thinking of me!

And share my card!  The Ways to Use It Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers today is "Boys and Their Toys" and boy was this a tough one for me!  I have a hard time coming up with masculine cards.  Mo Manning came to the rescue with this Video Boy digital nephews all LOVE video games!

Creative Nugget:  This image was so much fun to color with my copics!  I tried to give the jeans a stonewashed look, so after coloring and shading them, I got the colorless blender and started dabbing away!  The image was then cut using the Labels two dies by Spellbinders and layered onto Night of Navy card stock.  The sketch was suggested by Mo's Digital Challenge for last week. The patterned papers used are by Echo Park and the Pure Poppy borders along the side were cut with the scalloped Edgeabilities dies.  The little tag was cut with the Pennants and More Die Set and stamped with Ticket Sentiments, both by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I will be using this card for my nephews birthday...hope he likes it!

Thanks so much for stopping by today...hope you get a chance to get out and enjoy the sunshine!
