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)

Merry Christmas to You and Yours

Hello friends and happy Saturday to you!  Before I get to this week's sketch from The Sweet Stop, I want to take a moment to thank all of you for visiting with me from time to time and to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!  I appreciate so much your very kind and supportive comments and have enjoyed getting to know you better. This Christmas, may the warmth of the Lord's presence bring you joy, peace, and blessings that last throughout the coming year.

Now onto the sketch!

Creative Nugget:  Yes...I'm still making Christmas cards!  My plan is to continue with a Christmas version of the sketch each week to begin building my stash for next year.  We'll see if I can keep up!  LOL!  For this sample, Festive papers by Authentique were stitched to Smokey Shadow card stock and mounted to a Soft Stone card base.  The candle image, from one of my very favorite Christmas sets by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, Christmas Light, was cut with the matching die and colored with Copic Markers.  It was then popped up onto Circle Nesties and a Lacey Circle.  The sentiments from the Christmas Tags set were hand cut into banners.  A couple pearls, Glossy Accents, and Stickes added to the flame, create some texture. 

For more Christmas eye candy, stop in on the other Sugar Babies.  I hope in all the hustle and bustle of the next few days you find some time to play along with us this week at The Sweet Stop!
