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)

Buttons and Fibers and Bears...Oh My!

Happy Saturday to you all!  I'm so glad you stopped in for a visit because it's time for another Sweet Stop sketch!  This week's sketch has a spin and that is to use fabulous fibers.  I love button twine and Baker's twine, but wasn't sure how I was going to use it in a unique way until I saw Stef's inspiration challenge from last Saturday at SCS.   Blumenthal Lansing is the place to shop for buttons and this FRIENDS picture frame provided the needed inspiration. 

Creative Nugget:  Since it's time for many students and teachers to head back to school, I chose Reading Rhubarb, a Sweet 'n Sassy digi image, as the subject for my card, but turned Rhubarb into Rhubarbette by adding a skirt and a bow.  The skirt was made with a piece of ruffled ribbon with the top ruffle cut off and adhered to a piece of button twine for the little waist band.  The image was colored with copic markers.  The frame was made with rectangle nesties and buttons strung with Baker's twine.  Easy-peasy...but oh so cute!  The circle part of the sketch was layered onto a fleur de lis motif die from Spellbinders.  The frame and the circle were then layered onto a piece of Cosmo Cricket DP.  I had so much fun making the button frame that I decided to do another one.

Now it's your turn to grab some fibers and this week's sketch and join the fun!  There's even a chance to win the "Seeing Spots" clear stamp set from the Sweet 'n Sassy Store!  While you're at it, don't forget to stop over at The Sweet Stop and see what the other Sugar Babies have done.  You will be amazed at all the creative ways to use fibers on your cards!   Thanks for spending some time with me today...just as the sentiment on my sketch card my friends are such a blessing to me!  Thank you for your many kind comments.  Have a wonderful weekend!

Oh my goodness! Look how SWEET these cards are! I absolutely love how you added the cute skirt and hair bow to Reading Rhubarb. All the buttons with the twine is just adorable. The sentiment, all makes the card. I love your second card as well and you definitely are inspiring me to try the buttons around the image idea! Your coloring is amazing!
