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)

Sweet Baby Mine

Happy Sweet Stop Saturday, stamping friends!  I hope you've been staying cool!  With temperatures near 100 and humid I have been hiding inside with the air conditioning to stay comfortable.  That hasn't been all bad because I've been getting some stamping projects finished.  There's even a Christmas version for this week's sketch by The Sweet let's get started!

Creative Nugget:  This past Thursday, the Ways to Use It challenge at Splitcoaststampers was to include something child-like on your card or project.  This gave me the opportunity to use our new sketch for this week AND my favorite Vintage Baby image by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. The image was stamped, colored with copic markers, cut out with an oval nestie, and sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  This gorgeous Graphic 45 patterned paper and Old Olive card stock was used for the layers on the sketch.  Each layer was distressed with a scissors and distress ink.  Piercing was added around each border.  Some lace was layered on the strip of adorable baby faces.  The main image was layered onto a scalloped oval and popped up on top of the horizontal panel.  Liquid Pearls was added to each scallop.  A button and a sweet tiny tag was tied onto the lace with some button jute to finish the card.  Hope you like it!

And here's the Christmas version:

I hope you are able to play along with SSS165.  Here's The Sweet Stop sketch for this week and some inspiration from the talented Sugar Babies!

Gorgeous cards Cathy. Love the images and the coloring. The papers are lovely, especially on the baby card. Makes the card so elegant. The pearls on the scallops look perfect. Also love the popped up birds on the second card.
