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)

Thinking of You

Hello stampin' friends!  Not only is is Saturday and time for a fun new sketch at The Sweet Stop, but this weekend I'll be thinking of you as I am working at the Sweet 'n Sassy booth at the Heirloom Rubber Stamp & Paper Arts Festival in York, PA!  If it's anything like last year's show, my wallet will suffer a tremendous blow!  LOL!  If you're anywhere near York, stop in and say, "Hi!"  Before you come go to Sweet 'n Sassy's Member Forum at Splitcoaststampers for a fabulous discount coupon!

Now...on to my sample for this week!

Creative Nugget:  I loved this week's sketch...wait a minute...I say that every week, don't I!  LOL!  I began building my layers by stitching some new Indie papers by My Mind's Eye to Chocolate Chip card stock and adhered them to a Vintage Cream card base.  The sentiment from the "Scripture Series 3" from Our Daily Bread Designs was stamped onto Neenah Solar White with Rich Cocoa ink and framed with the flower flourish from the "Be Joyful" set, also by ODBD.  The flowers were colored with Copic Markers to match the DP. This was cut with an Oval Nestie and framed with a Scalloped Oval. Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish Die cuts were used to further frame the wonderful sentiment.  I always use Stampin' Up!'s Photo Corner Punch to make my fishtail banners...that way I can make them any size I want.  The Thinking of You sentiment was mounted on some Chocolate Chip card stock and added to the card as well as some pearls to the center of the flowers.  What do you think?  I will also be submitting this card to the ODBDSLC125 Challenge which was to use a sentiment and fall colors.

If you haven't done the Sweet 'n Sassy October Release Blog Hop yet, scroll down to my last post for the details...there's still time to qualify for the $25 dollar prize!  Then hop on over to the Sugar Baby blogs for some more wonderful inspiration for this week's sketch challenge at The Sweet Stop!

I have just discovered your site and IMMEDIATELY joined up! Your cards are always a treat for the eyes, plus I get great design inspiration from you. You make the kinds of cards I love the most - lots of layers and textures. And your blog is lovely.
