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)

Gobble, Gobble

It's Saturday again and time for another sketch from The Sweet Stop! We're continuing our "Blast from the Past" theme with sketch 26 this week. Since it's the third week of the month, the spin on this sketch is "Let's Recycle."  Reuse something on your card and have a chance to win a $10.00 gift certificate to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamp Store!  So...let's get started!

Creative Nugget:  My sister-in-law found this old Thanksgiving program at an antique store and thought I might be able to use it, so I decided to recycle it.  The background on my sample card was cut down from the front of the program.  The perfect image to use on a Thanksgiving card is this cute turkey from Sweet 'n Sassy's "Gobble, Gobble" clear stamp set.  The Pilgrim turkey is colored with copic markers and cut with a circle Nestie.  This was put on a black circle and then a Pure Poppy Floral Doily Motif.  The turkey panel was popped up on a Fine Linen card front with a feather tucked behind it.  I stamped the "Gobble, Gobble" sentiment several times, cut it apart, and mounted it on the card front as well.  Black rhinestone stickers were added to the corners of the card.  Now it's your turn to find something to recycle on your card.  Upload your creation for SSS130 using the linky tool at The Sweet Stop...we love to see your cards each week!  Check out the other Sugar Babies for more inspiration!
