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)

Sending Hugs and Prayers

Sending hugs and prayers from the beach at Ocean City Maryland.  Our vacation here is coming to an end...we head back to PA tomorrow.  What a relaxing and enjoyable time we had here.  We  had a chance to meet with some very good friends who were here at the same time!  Of course Casey was with us and had a wonderful time as well...there was a park that had a beach just for dogs.  He was in doggie heaven!  I'm ready to get home only because I know that in two weeks we'll be back down! 

Korin has another wonderful sketch for us this week at The Sweet Stop.  I can see myself using this one again and again.

Creative Nugget: Here's my card based on this week's sketch.  This adorable image is a Mo Manning digital...isn't she just the cutest?  She's colored with my favorite medium, Copic Markers.  Diamond Stickles were added to the centers of the flowers, the bees' wings, and her flip-flops for some sparkle.  The pretty DP is from Cosmo Cricket.  I find myself using black...a frame brightly colored images and DP.  It really makes the colors pop!  The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs and the cute little bow was made on my Bow Easy.  Check out what the other Sugar Babies have done with the sketch and head on over to The Sweet Stop and play along.

Cathy, this is truly darling. I love the idea of the black framing the bright colors. I must try this technique myself. It really makes the patterns and image pop.
