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)

A Tasty Treat

Happy Saturday and welcome back to the first sketch of 2012 at The Sweet Stop!  The Sugar Babies have taken a little break, but now we're back and are excited about sharing all new sketch designs with you!  Our first sketch uses some different angles so get ready for some wonderful eye candy from the design team!

Creative Nugget:  For my sample this week, I went with this sweet Cocoa image from a brand new clear stamp set called "Cocoa's Tasty Treats."  This set along with seven others PLUS new dies were released on Thursday night and are available at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps store right now!  Cocoa was colored with copic markers and then the fun of making this yummy ice cream sundae look good enough to eat began.  Glossy Accents were added to the fudge and the cherry and then White Opal Liquid Pearls was added to the whipped cream...YUM!  The image was then cut with a square nestie along with two other squares that were embossed with the square lattice embossing folder and sponged with Spun Sugar (how appropriate) Distress Ink.  These were mounted on some Early Espresso card stock which was cut at an angle to fit across the card.  The background was layered with some Bo Bunny patterned paper from "The Sweet Tooth" collection.  This was all mounted on a Creamy Caramel card base.  An eyelet border, Baker's Twine, buttons, and pearls, all some of my favorite things, were added to complete this yummy card for a sweet friend!

Now before heading off to see some more fabulous designs by the Sugar Babies, I'd like to share a little more sweetness with you.  Our Kody is now four months old and its been quite a while since I've shared some photos with you so just take a look at this cutie pie!

The Perfect Christmas present!
