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)

Together Forever

Hello sketch lovin' friends!  Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We had a white one here for the first time in so many years, but the snow didn't stay very we're expecting more today!  It might be a good day to stay in and stamp...SNSS has a small release coming next week, so I get to play with some new stamps!  Yea! Since it's Saturday, there's also a new sketch at The Sweet Stop and it's one I'll be using again and again!  One of the little girls from our church, grew up (Where did those years go?), went to school in Australia, and came home with a fianc√©!  So for my sample today, I chose an old favorite stamp set for her wedding shower.

Creative Nugget:  I love the vintage papers from A Ladies' Diary paper pad by Graphics 45 and thought it would be perfect for a young lady's wedding shower.  The papers were matted in black and attached to a Vintage Cream card base.  The darling image from Together Silhouettes by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink, the best ink for stamping silhouettes IMHO!  The umbrella was paper pieced using the same paper as one of the strips on the background.  This was cut with the Labels Four Die, sponged with Tattered Rose Distress Ink, and mounted onto a Romantic appropriate!  A bow and some pearls were added to finish the card!  I hope my young friend likes it and you do, too!

Be sure to check out the wonderful samples by the other Sugar Babies...I hope you can join us this week at The Sweet Stop!
