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)

Springtime Blessings

Hello everyone!  Hope you've been enjoying all of the wonderful samples for the February Release.  This is the fourth and final day of the Sweet 'n Sassy February Release Feature Mini Hops.


Today the featured set is...


It wouldn't be Springtime without beautiful birds and blooming trees.  This wonderful set reminds us how special we are to God and will encourage your loved ones to feel the same way.
  • Set includes 1 image and 6 sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 6" x 4"
  • Image measures approximately 3" x 2 1/2"
  • Illustrated by Chris Dickinson
  • Cost is $15

I just loved coloring this beautiful image.  Here is my Springtime Blessings card made with this set!


Creative Nugget:  The darling sparrow image was colored with Copic Markers, cut with a Circle Nestie, and pierced.  This panel was mounted on a Soft Suede Circle Nestie, and a Splendid Circle Die which had been cut in half...one half going on the top and one going on the bottom.  BasicGrey patterned paper was stitched to Soft Suede card stock and mounted to a Solar Crest card front. The sentiment was stamped on an oval nestie.  The rolled roses were made by punching a scalloped circle, cutting it in a spiral, and rolling the spiral from outside in. Little pearls were glued to the inside of the roses.  Other embellishments include ribbon, a pearl brad, and die cut leaves.

I love the peach color on this and the piercing adds a nice touch! I'll have to try making a rose from a scallop circle!

I also love the peach color, and the outline of the piercing adds alot. Sometimes the smallest details can really make the designs shine brightly!
