SSS234...Christmas Light

Hello Sweet Stop fans. This is sadly our very last Sweet Stop Sketch.

I've been trying to get some Christmas cards done, so I am not making them last minute. So for our last sketch I have a Christmas card to share. I actually put a bunch of glitter accents on the card, but it is hard to see in the photo. It looks much cooler in real life.

I hope you will stop by The Sweet Stop Sketch blog and see what the rest of the Sugar Babies did with our last sketch. You can also link up your project that you made this week with the sketch.

Have a blessed weekend!

SSS233...Thankful for Autumn Weather

What a beautiful Saturday. It is finally feeling like Autumn here. Nice cool mornings and beautiful low temp days. For the Sweet Stop Sketch this week, we have an Fall/Autumn spin.

I pulled out some older fun fall papers as my starting point. I stamped some leaves from the Leaf Silhouettes set with colors from the pattern papers and used them in place of the oval shape. I cut the thankful sentiment with my Silhouette Cameo.

Please join us and show us what you can make with the sketch this week. You can see what the rest of the Sugar Babies made and link up your project over at The Sweet Stop Sketch.

"Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.Psalm 100:4 (NIV)

SSS232...He Never Changes

Happy Soggy Saturday Everyone! Boy have we been getting pounded with rain. I thought I saw Noah floating in his Ark today. LOL! And to top it off we had reservations for a camping trip this weekend. So I am writing this post from inside our RV. Praying it stops raining soon.

I love the sketch this week. A very simple sketch that really opens a lot of possibilities. I ordered the Featured Set, Season of Change, last week from Sweet N Sassy Stamps and had to use that for my card. I just love the gorgeous leaves. And how about that quote. So glad God never changes. For my card I pulled out this fabulous pattern paper I bought from Hobby Lobby a while ago. I just love all the wonderful words about God on the paper. So uplifting! I pulled some of the colors from the words on the paper to stamp the leaves and cut them out. I wanted to give a little bit of a grunge feel, so I sponged everything and rolled the one corner of the main panel.

Now it is your turn to show us your stamping stuff with the sketch this week. Please stop over at The Sweet Stop Blog and look at what the rest of the Sugar Babies made with the sketch and then link up your card or project.

"God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?" Numbers 23:19 (NIV)
When everything around me seems to be out of control and people let me down, I am full of joy knowing that God will never change nor will He let me down.

SSS231...Comforting Bear Hugs

It's Sweet Stop Sketch Saturday and I had a lot of fun with the sketch this week. 

I received a new stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps in the mail this week and had to ink her up. The stamp name is Jasmine. This is my first stamp from the company. I just adore this little girl hugging her bear so tightly. The "Bear Hugs" sentiment is from the Sweet N Sassy Stamps set, Love From Rhubarb, which is on sale right now. I added a lot of texture to this card. I pulled the colors for the stamped image and the card stock from that plaid paper. I've had this plaid paper sitting on my table for a while and finally found a way to use it. I used embossing folders on the red and the blue panels. After embossing them, I rubbed some VersaMagic Cloud White Chalk Ink over them. I love that look. I added lots of silver half pearls to make it shine. Then finished it off with some white lace trim and polka dotted ribbon.

Now it is your turn to give the sketch a try. You can head over to The Sweet Stop Sketch blog to see what all of the Sugar Babies did with the sketch and then link up your own creation.

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God."  2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (NIV)
