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)

Christmas Penguins

Happy Saturday to you, sketch lovin' friends!  It's been a BUSY week, but now it's time for a new sketch at The Sweet Stop.  This one is perfect for those last minute Christmas cards that need to be finished.

Creative Nugget:  These adorable penguins from Sweet 'n Sassy's Christmas Penguins clear stamp set were colored with Copic Markers quite a while ago, waiting to be mounted on the perfect card...this was the sketch!  A snow marker was used to give texture to the fur on the penguins' hats.   I changed the circle to an oval, but other than that, kept true to the sketch design.  The Winter Park papers by Echo Park and the snowflake embossed panel provided the background for this festive image.  A snowflake punch, ribbon, and rhinestone stickers were added before mounting everything to a Neenah Solar White panel.  The sentiment from the Cocoa's Christmas clear stamp set was stamped on a hand cut banner and added to the card.  And there you have it...quick and easy!

I hope you get a change to join us this week over at The Sweet Stop. Be sure to check out the amazing samples by the rest of the Sugar Baby Team!
