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)

Autumn Bounty

Happy Saturday to you, friends!  As you read this post, I am so excited to be at the Heirloom's York Rubber Stamps & Paper Arts Festival with Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!  If you're any where close to the York Expo Center in York, PA, I hope you can join us there.  There are over 25 festival exhibitors, ample parking, food service, and door prize drawings! In addition, if you go to the Sweet 'n Sassy forum over at Splitcoaststampers, you will find a coupon for a 10% discount on your entire purchase at the Sweet 'n Sassy booth!  Fun, Food, and a chance for Free awesome is that!

Now...on to the Sweet Stop sketch challenge.  We are continuing on with our "Blast from the Past" theme this month, and this week we are repeating sketch 37.

Creative Nugget:  For my sample this week, I went with a fall theme using a beautiful image from Sweet 'n Sassy's "Autumn Bounty" clear stamp set.  The image was colored with copic markers and given some glittery highlights with a jelly roll pen.  The gorgeous fall papers are from the "Forever Fall Collection" by Bo Bunny.  The doily is Cheery Lynn's English Tea Party doily die...LOVE this die!  Some Baker's twine was threaded through the doily before it was adhered to the DP layer.  All the layers were heavily sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and mounted on a Bermuda Bay card base.  The little leaves in the corner are die cut with Spellbinders Foliage Shapeabilities dies.  A button, pearls colored with a copic marker to match, and ribbon accents finish the card.   Now it's your turn...grab your stamps, follow the sketch, and upload your card using the linky tool at The Sweet Stop.  For more inspiration, check out the other Sugar Babies' samples.

Thanks for bearing with me as I get accustomed to a new computer...switching from a PC to a Mac will take some getting used to!
