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)

Christmas Blessings

Hello friends!  Happy Saturday!  Now that December is here, the crunch to get ready for Christmas is on, and I have so many more Christmas cards yet to make...yikes!  Being short on time, I looked for an easy sample to make for this week's Sweet Stop Sketch.  I found this already colored Tilda on my desk and went from there.

Creative Nugget:  Since Tilda was already colored with copics, all I had to do was add a little twine to the candy cane and build my card base using the sketch.  The base of the card is Pure Linen Card stock.  Layered onto that is True Black and some lovely papers by My Mind's Eye.  I loved the text in the background and the sparkly red stripes that matched the sparkle on Tilda.  It's hard to see in the photo, but this card really shimmers!  The sentiment is from a wonderful sentiment set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called "Christmas Tags." Black hemp found in my stash and jute button twine were tied in a bow around the front of the card.  Some how ribbon just didn't seem to fit the style of the card.  That said, this card went together rather easily...hope you like it!

Now don't forget to check out the other samples by the talented Sugar Babies Team!  I don't know about you, but I think the talent on this design team is amazing!  The samples just keep getting better and better!
