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)

Sweet Wryn

Hello stampin' friends!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready to begin a new week.  I had a chance to relax at the beach last week with my family.  The weather was perfect the whole time we were there and we had a fabulous time....we ate entirely too much! The only glitch was my SIL's car broke down and had to be towed all the way back home.  We managed to pile everyone, including Kody, and ALL the luggage into my car for the trip home...what an experience!  This week promises to be just as busy with VBS and the new August release by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  So, that being said...I apologize for this late post, but I do have a sample for The Sweet Stop sketch this week.

Creative Nugget:  In my copic class, I'm learning how to color trees, so this adorable Tiddly Inks image was perfect.  I'm not sure I have the shading quite right yet, so you'll probably see this tree image popping up again down the road!  I did manage to create a little texture on the tree by dabbing on some colorless blender ink.  Sweet Treat Wryn was also colored with copics, fussy cut out, and popped up in front of the tree.  A dab of Glossy Accents was added to the ice cream.  The colored image was layered on True Black card stock and patterned paper from the Alora Collection by Bo Bunny.  All panels were attached to a Select White card front.  The corner of the main panel was curled and some flowers from the DP were cut out and added.  The sentiment is from the Summertime Rhubarb set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and was stamped on a hand cut flag.  A few colored pearls and some Baker's twine finish the card. 

I hope you'll take some time to visit the other Sugar Babies and play along with us at The Sweet Stop!  This sketch is perfect for those large images or for creating a scene!  In either case...I can't wait to see your fabulous creations!
