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)

Ready for Christmas?

Hello sweet sketch friends!  Saturday means it's time for a new sketch at The Sweet Stop.  It really IS too early for Christmas, but not to early to begin working on those Christmas cards.  I took the opportunity with this week's sketch to do just that!

Creative Nugget:  The sketch was used to create the layers for the card front using Solar Crest, Riding Hood Red, Kraft, and Aspen Frost DP by Basic Grey.  The ornament, which is a sneak peek at a new stamp set being released next Friday by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, was cut with a matching die and stamped with Teal Zeal ink.  Some greenery from the Fancy Foliage Dies, a Spellbinders set made for Our Daily Bread Designs, was added at the top and the ornament was hung with some silk ribbon.  A few rhinestones were added for a bit of bling.  I couldn't decide where to put the sentiment so it will be added later!

Be sure to check out the other Sugar Babies for more inspiration for our new sketch.  I hope you'll be able to play along with us this week at The Sweet Stop for SSS226! We love to see your creations!
