Big and Sentimental.....

Hello Blogging friends: Lets get SENTIMENTAL, shall we?  The SHOPPING OUR STASH has a new challenge for you to play with this week, we want you to make your SENTIMENT the focal point on your card so, here is the card I made that I hope will inspire you to come and play along.

When I go to the craft stores for supplies, I always take a peek at the bargain/clearance section before I leave the store and, more often than not, I find really great stuff, from stamps to ink, paper, etc. and this stamp set is one of those great finds.  It's from Penny Black and it's called "Life Messages", this one I think, it's perfect for a soon to be Graduate.
I stamped this beautiful sentiment using my MISTI, I don't think I would have been able to highlight the words any other way. I used my SU markers and Versafine black ink.

I always finish the inside of my cards, saves me time when mailing them.

All of the images are from a Friskars stamp set also found in the bargain section.

I hope you go dig out your sentiment stamps and come and play with us at the SHOPPING OUR STASH gallery, we can't wait to see what you create.
Stop by my teammates blogs to see their beautiful creations, get more inspired and join us.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
