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)

Oh Hap-Bee Day!

Oh hap-bee day to you, sketch lovin' friends!  Saturday means a new sketch at The Sweet Stop and because it's the third week of the month there's a spin on this one. Since Spring is right around the corner, we want to see birds or bees on your stamping projects this week.  One lucky participant will also be eligible to win a PRIZE...a $15 credit at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps store!

Creative Nugget:  I reached for Bee Happy Rhubarb for my sample this week...he's the most adorable bee....don't you agree!  Here he is, all colored up with Copic Markers and cut with a Hexagon Nestie and mounted on a True Black Scalloped Hexagon.
Lilybeedesign and Studio Calico patterned papers were used for the decorative panels, while the So Saffron panel was embossed with a honeycomb design.  All layers were stitched to True Black mats and attached to a Pure Luxury card base.  The sentiment was stamped on a hand cut banner.  Diamond Stickes adds a bit of sparkle to the wings and pearls were added to Rhubarb's antenna. Doesn't this card just make you want to smile!  Oh Hap-bee day!

For more wonderful inspiration check out the other super talented Sugar Babies!
