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)

Goodbye Summer

Squee!  It's Saturday and time again for another Sweet Stop sketch.  It's drying out here in PA and we actually saw some sun yesterday...Yea!  That reminded me that it is still officially summer...that's right, autumn doesn't officially begin until September 23rd, so it's still summer for twelve more days.  While I've been enjoying the fall cards and projects here on blog land and in the galleries, I thought I would give summer a little love one last time!

Creative Nugget: For some reason I hardly ever grab my purple goodies to work with, but I love this Bo Bunny collection and decided to pull out the purples and greens on this project.  The card base is Plum Pudding and all of the DP layers are mounted on this color as well.  The image is a cute digital from Mo's Digital Pencil called "Wonder."  This little sweetie was colored with copics, cut out with a circle nestie, and mounted on a scalloped circle.  Notice her white shoes...I know it's after Labor Day, but I couldn't resist!  This was then popped up over the double layered ribbon.  A modern label punch was used for the sentiment.  Pearls and a bow made with my Bow Easy finish off the card.  I hope you enjoy this card and the last remaining days of summer!

Hop on over to The Sweet Stop to see some amazing samples created by the other Sugar won't be disappointed.  Then use the linky tool over at The Sweet Stop to upload your card.  We love to see what you do each week!
