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 Light

Hello sweet friends!  What a deluge we've been experiencing here...rain, rain, rain!  Hopefully it will taper off a bit, because today and tomorrow is the Heirloom Paper Crafts Festival in York, PA.  Both Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and Our Daily Bread Designs will be there, so if you're in the area, stop in and say hello!

Saturday also means it's time for a new sketch at The Sweet Stop, and this week's sketch is very versatile...hope you can play along with us!  I focused on Christmas again this week.
Creative Nugget:  Simple Stories papers were used to make the panels for the card front, stitching them to Cherry Cobbler card stock and then to a Kraft card base.  Love these papers as they add a bit of country charm to the card.  The Christmas candle is from the Christmas Light stamp set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and was die cut with the Christmas Light Candle Die, stamped, and colored with Copic Markers.  This was popped up on a Vintage Cream panel embossed with a new Darice embossing folder.  The sentiment from the Christmas Light set was stamped on a label which is part of the Bookmarks & More Die set.  Everything was sponged with Brushed Corduroy Distress ink for added warmth, and some Glossy Accents was added to the holly berries and the wax drips on the candle.  A few pearls, Glossy Accents, and seam binding finish the card.

The other Sugar Babies have some awesome samples to jump start your creativity!
