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)

Rise and Grind

Hello, friends!  Today I'm playing along with Freshly Made Sketches 357 and some new stamps just released by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  This card is for all of you coffee lovers out there...(I'm going to pretend that these are cups of hot chocolate)!

Creative Nugget:  Blueprint Sketch, Antique Linen, Worn Lipstick, Bundled Sage, and Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Inks were used to create the "Smooshed" panel on the left.  The plaid is from the new Texture Tiles 4 stamp set and the colorful coffee cups from the Jesus & Coffee stamp set were colored with Copic Markers, cut out and popped onto the card.  The sentiment is also from the Jesus & Coffee stamp set and was white embossed.  Stitching was added to finish the card.

This card will also be submitted for the following challenges:


Thanks so much for stopping by...have a cuppa for me!

Hugs,
Cathymac

Great card, Kathymac! I like how the stitching carries on the theme of the "stitching" trim of the coffee cups! Well done!!! Thank you for sharing your creativity with us at our October technique challenge at Try Stampin' on Tuesday! -Donna
