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)

Peace of God's cold out there!  What a good day to stay in and craft!  Hello sketch lovin''s Saturday and time for another sketch at The Sweet Stop!

Creative Nugget:  Nothing comforts like the peace of God and knowing that nothing can separate us from His love!  I reached for the clear stamp set, Peace of God by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, for my sample today.  The titmouse image was colored with Copic Markers and layered onto circle and scalloped circle dies.  Glossy Accents was added to the berries for texture.  The Bo Bunny patterned papers were cut to follow the sketch and sewn to Smokey Shadow card stock.  Everything was mounted onto a Neenah Solar Crest card front.  The sentiment was stamped on a tiny tag and tied to the bow.  A few punched flowers and pearls finish the card.  I hope this card will bring comfort to a woman in our congregation going through a difficult time.

Check in on the other Sugar Babies for more lovely inspiration for SSS195.

Cathy, this is gorgeous! The sewing, the beautifully colored bird, the lovely bow and comforting sentiment. I have this set and haven't inked it yet. Your card definitely inspires me to create something with this set.

This is so beautiful! Your coloring is just awesome and I love all the wonderful little details with flowers, pearls and that adorable little tag! I've always loved watching the Titmous birds at our feeders, they are such cute little birds! How I missed this set I'll never know but you can be sure I am getting it right away!
