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)

God's Purpose

Hope you have had a wonderful week, my friends!  What a busy week it has been!  Sweet and Sassy Stamps is celebrating their 4th birthday this month with lots of special surprises, so if you get a chance...head on over to SNSS for a glimpse of all that's happening!  This past Thursday, six new clear stamp sets, several digis, and three die sets were released.  I used one of the new clear stamp sets, "God's Purpose," for my Sweet Stop sketch sample for this week!

Creative Nugget:  After doing a Google search for chickadee images, I colored this sweet little chickadee with copic markers.  Highlights were added with a white poster-paint pen and Glossy Accents was added to the berries.  The image was cut with a square nestie and mounted on a labels one die cut.  Porcelain DP by Basic Grey was used for the panel pieces on the sketch.  Everything was mounted on a Sweet Blush panel textured with my favorite canvas impression plate.  The scripture verse stamped on the bottom, also one of my favorites, is one of five sentiments included in this stamp set.  All panels were adhered to a True Black card base.  Some Baker's Twine and black pearls were added to complete the card.  This card will be used for the Encouragement Ministry at my church...hopefully to bring comfort to the recipient.

Check out what the other talented Sugar Babies at The Sweet Stop have done this week, then head on over to SNSS.  I'm sure you'll find something new to add to your wish list!
