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)

Shining Light

Happy Saturday, sweet friends!  Hope you've had a good week.  The temperatures here have been mild with low humidity so Kody and I have thoroughly enjoyed our walks each day!  

Saturday has rolled around again, so it's time for another sketch at The Sweet Stop.  Since my nephew is now a new dad, I used the sketch this week to make a Father's Day card for him...his first one!

Creative Nugget:  The lighthouse image and sentiment are from the Shining Light clear stamp set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  The image was colored with Copic Markers and matted on Cherry Cobbler card stock.  The decorative papers from Fancy Pants Designs' Down by the Shore collection were also matted on Cherry Cobbler.  Just a hint of a wave-like border can be seen behind the lighthouse panel.  All layers were mounted on a Vintage Cream card base.  Some twine, a mini tag, and some pearls finish the card.  This card is making me anxious for our trip to the beach this summer!

The Sugar Babies have more fabulous sketch samples for sure to check them out.  Hope you can join us this week for SSS214 over at The Sweet Stop!
